Re^3: Looking up elements of an array in another array!
in thread Looking up elements of an array in another array!
Thanks again, Kenosis. Yes, indeed. Entering the third option without brackets, does create a text file, but without any results(?) The files, I am looking for, however do exist in the directory. So they should be found.
Hmm.. If I get the two arrays (@ds and @dirFile) in my script listed, I can see that grep /$line/ should find the matching elements in the second array. But @results keeps beeing empty. The funny thing is: if I define @ds writing some of the wanted IDs directly into the script @ds = ("I C 7702", "I C 7710");
the script works perfectly. But I want the array filled by reading a long list of IDs from a text file. Any idea what is going wrong?
