I have the following query on spliting using perl:

sample input :

1234,3,"testing , sample"$

if i use: @field = split /,/;
the outoput will be :
field[0] = 1234
field[1] = 3
field [2] = testing
however, i need the whole string "testing , sample"  to store in the field [2]

expected output:
1234 ,3 ,testing sample

Could anyone advise how to split the record to get the expected output?
