Post #1 of 4
I am a new perl user. I am trying to get a text in between two dots of a line, but my program returns the entire line.
For example: I have a text which looks like
My sampledata 1,2 for perl .version 1_1.
I used the following match statement
$x =~ m/(\.)(.*)(\.)/;
my output for $x should be version 1_1 but I am getting the entire line as my match.
I would greatly appreciate any help.
