Well the screamingly obvious way to do in Python what I think your
imprecise question is asking is:
"foo_bar zot plugh _ xyzzy".replace( "_", " ").split() ['foo', 'bar', 'zot', 'plugh', 'xyzzy']


Talking about screaming, I fled screaming from perl at about the perl 3
stage -- I can't help you any further; I don't want to turn into a
pillar of salt.

Why don't you ask stupid perl questions on comp.lang.perl? ?

Cheers,
John

So, I download the latest "stable" tar for perl (5.8.7) and try to compile it on the Solaris 8 (SPARC) box that I administrate. I try all sorts of different switches, but I can't get it to compile.
