in reply to how to check whether a particular word exists in filename

There are a myriad of ways to solve this issue, but I read your criterion as 'Ends with .txt but not with A1.txt'. The easiest solution here would be to add an additional test to your set:
if ( ( $file =~ m/^CHECK*/ ) && ( $file =~ m/\.txt$/ ) && ( $file !~ m +/A1\.txt$/ ) ) {

Note that I've added a backslash before your .. If you intend to match literal periods, you need to escape them because period is on of the Metacharacters; it matches anything except a new line.
