I try to assign the matched result to another variable but instead the other variable gets the value 1 which means that there is match.

Here is the example:

my ($clientRoot) = $infoArray[3] =~ /Client root:\s.*/;


$infoArray[3]  is something like this: Client root: some/path/in/here

Expected result for $clientRoot:

some/path/in/here
