[OS X TeX] [OT] Need Perl Regex for...

Suppose I have a sentence like
Here are some words <fnameA>.<fnameB>.<ext> and more text afterward.
where <fnameA> and <fnameb> may have spaces/tabs in them and you may
assume <ext> has no spaces/tabs. Can one of you Perl experts out there
(I know you're there!) give me a Perl regex that would pick out only
the <fnameA>.<fnameB.<ext> part of the line. Can it be generalized to
include multiple <fname> sections separated by `.'
The best I've been able to do is .*?\.\S which wouldn't allow spaces
in <fnameB> or other sections.
By the way this is indirectly related to TeX! :-)
