RE: split and extraction
Message ID:
$abc = ( split /\s+/ )[8];

you can use the parenth with any function that returns an array, and just
pop a [] on the end.

FYI if you want the last element (not knowing what place it's in) just use
	This only works if you are not using @_ (or $_ I think). Use caution
for [$#_].
