Hi EEE

How do I write a regex in perl that trims each line at "] to the end of that line.

So my result file would look like:

0eef2427e-fdde-1341a-b5d1-1bc214721332451.pdf
0eef2427e-fdde-1341a-b5d1-1b24214721332451.pdf


Original file:
0eef2427e-fdde-1341a-b5d1-1bc214721332451.pdf"] was not found or subfolder ["DailyNews"] not created.
0eef2427e-fdde-1341a-b5d1-1b24214721332451.pdf"] was not found or subfolder ["GlobalServicesInc"] not created.

Use this:
's/(.*\.pdf).*/$1/'

or, if you really need to stop at the first "], use this:
s/(.*?)"\].*/$1/

More efficient (no capture - just removing the unwanted chars) would be this:
s{"\].*$}{};
