The result of `date +"%b %d %H"` has a trailing newline, which is not present in your string. You need to remove that, perhaps with chomp:

chomp(my $logsIncDate = `date +"%b %d %H"`);

Also, why are you chomping your input, only to re-append a newline on storage? Seems like you could avoid unnecessary operations (and more opportunities for confusion and bugs) with

while (my $line = <SwitchLogs>) { if($line =~ m/$logsIncDate/ && $line =~ m/SW_MATM-4-MACFLAP_NOTIF/ +){ push(@eigrp, $line); $sendemail = 1; } }

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

    Thanks much. I was just missing the newline after my date formatting. Good catch.
