Hi All,

Hello

I need help in regular expression. I have string as follows.

OMS.FD.08.03.000.14

I need only OMS.FD.08.03.000 this much part of the string.i want to
exclude .14

Please help.

That's not much of a spec. How far have you got?

Perhaps one of these possibilities will help?

$_ = "OMS.FD.08.03.000";
s/.14//;
s/\.\d+$//;
s/\..*$//;
s/^((?:[^.*]\.){4}[^.]*).*/$1/;
