Hi
i'm looking for a regex to split the filename from a path, eg
$_ = '/path/to/my//file/space /my music - name.mp3';

how do i get the filename (my music - name.mp3) and the path  (/path/to/my//file/space /)
into a variable, i'm trying to do something like
$MP3= '/path/to/my//file/space /my music - name.mp3';
($var,$value) = split(/\/([^.]*)/ig,$MP3,2);    

i'm lost, any idea ?

thx

that almost works, i would expect $value to be 'my music - name.mp3' but
the above sample gives me 'name.mp3'
