Re: [harshmane] how to split string without using split function
[In reply to]
not by using split function but by using simple Regex.
The first argument to split *is* a regex.
However, doing it without 'split' would go like this:
Match your string on the pattern
(note the g-modifier!) in list context. X is a pattern describing the fields you want to keep together. For example,
'xxabayyyybcbbbzz' =~ /([abc]+)/g
evaluated in list context, yields the list ('aba','bcbb').
