      I like File::Basename, myself.

      =======

      use File::Basename;

      ($file, $path, $suffix) = fileparse("/path/to/01Jan2002-23:00:02.log.gz01Jan2002-12:00:02.log

      print $file . "\n" . $path . "\n" . "$suffix" . "\n";

      =======

      This should yield the following output:

      01Jan2002-12:00:02.log
      /path/to/
      .gz

      Hope this helps,
