( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It could be ok, it depends on what you are expecting it to do...

As you have written you are extracting only the "02" part of the filename in $first_number and the "20061022" part in $second_number. I don't really believe it is what you meant to do :)

Please better explain what you are trying: in the example filename there are 4 numeric parts and you should at least decide the order of precedence between them (which are to be sort before). Secondly, if the format of the string is known (length of the numeric parts, for instance) there could be efficient ways than in the generic case.

Rule One: Do not act incautiously when confronting a little bald wrinkly smiling man.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
