assuming:
$FILE = "/net/vol01/shot/curtest.../2fa.ca"


then:
$FILE =~ s{/net/vol01(.*)}{$1};

or

$FILE =~ s{(/shot/.*)}{$1};

##############################################

or assuming:
$MY_VAR = "/net/vol01/shot/curtest.../2fa.ca"

then:
$MY_VAR =~ m{/net/vol01(.*)};
$FILE = $1;

or

$MY_VAR =~ m{(/shot/.*)};
$FILE = $1;

but, the word 'test will keep changing evertime the user types pwd on a different machine so
I need the ability to recognize the word between a '_' and '_v'

Awaiting more suggestions..

Thanks

the word test is in brackets... doesn't that mean it looks for test?

     11 my $take =~ s#.*_(test)_v.#$1#;

     13  while ($pwd = <>) {
     14
     15    if ($pwd = ~/$take/o) {  print "Take : $pwd \n"; }
     16
     17  }
     18
     19

Is this the right way to do it?

Seems like 'test' is hard coded.. but its going to change on different machines.
the word test is in brackets... doesn't that mean it looks for test?

#!/usr/local/bin/perl
      2
      3 use strict;
      4
      5  my $pwd = $ENV{PWD};
      6
      7  print "file is : $pwd \n";

         # pwd is - /shot/cuetest/wrappers/pix/out/wrappers_test_v3/2fa.cin
      8
        my $newtake;
      9
     10
     11 my $take =~ s#.*_([^_]*)_v.*#$1#;
     12
     13  while ($pwd = <>) {
     14
     15    if ($pwd = ~/$take/o) {  print "Take : $pwd \n"; }
     16
     17  }
     18
         print "Take : $newtake \n";
     19
     
     24
     25  exit;

I need to be able to get the file name from $pwd
get the take from $take =~ s#.*_([^_]*)_v.*#$1#;

And store the result in $newtake.

Here's the code that I currently have.  But, its just printing Take: 4294898770  .. some wierd numbers rather than printing 'test'.


Thanks for all your help.

Awaiting suggestions

$pwd = ~/$take/o

$pwd =~ /$take/o

One more regex I need help with..

Here's the file -
wrapper_cmp_v2_2kfa_lg8.1-10#.cla

I need to look for '1-10'
The number 1-10 will vary but its always going to be after the . and have a # after it.

Any suggestions.
