I need some help!

I would like someone to tell me how to do the following:

A client sends a message to one of my worlds, by typing:

wh Eneema Tell everyone Hey

This creates a trigger that runs a sub, which stores what they wrote after everyone in a variable. Then, the 'who' command is sent to the MUSH Window. Then the below statement is an example of what may return.

(* Current players: Evanu, Rice, MarcoMan, Tessera, The|Eneema, Eneema, Onua, Crayln, Xanphur, Rhowan, Mogrym, Blade|The|Hedgehog, Link182, Odyseey'Hyro.

I've specified the trigger expression for this to be:

^\(\* Current players: (.+)\.

Then it runs a sub.. Now, I want this sub to take everyone's name individually and send:

wh Evanu Hey
wh Rice Hey
wh MarcoMan Hey


The amount of players and names of players always differ!
I use PerlScript so only tell me awnsers in that! :P I'm sure its hardly difficult. Thankyou!

I am not a great Perlscript expert, but you have the makings there. Just take the wildcard from the trigger (from the who list), and use the appropriate Perl function to split that on the commas (creating an array), and then loop through the array sending the message you want.
