How to catch the part after the last slash in Perl?

Hi,
How can I catch the last part of a string which is after the last slash (back slash or forward slah) in Perl?

Example:

/some/path/in/here

Open in new window


Return:

here

Open in new window


or

\some\path\in\here

Open in new window


Return:

here

Open in new window


or

\some\path/in/here

Open in new window


Return:

here

Open in new window


or

/some/path\in\here

Open in new window


Return:

here

Open in new window

Assuming the string you want to extract the last part from is in $str, this will do it:
$last = (split m{[/\\]}, $str)[-1];

Open in new window

Or this:
if ($str =~ m{^.*[/\\](.*)$}) {
    $last = $1;
}

Open in new window

($last) = $str =~ m{([^/\\]*)$};
