in reply to Regexpression is not matching

If you want to match that exactly line and nothing else and extract no date, don't use a regex. Use eq:

use constant THE_LINE => q[ Code (inc. data) RO Data RW Data + ZI Data Debug Object Name]; ... if( $MapFile->[ $iterator ] eq THE_LINE ) { ... }

As for why your regex doesn't match.

Did you chomp the newlines off when you read the lines in? Does the leading whitespace contain tabs perhaps? Or elsewhere in the line?

    Thanks a lot! Yes, i have forgot to chomp the newline off and I will use equal instead of regex!

    Best regards!
