in reply to regular xpression stuff

In this case, you don't want a regex, at least directly. I think we've golfed this once, but in general:

my $to_be_matched = 'tab'; my $word = 'bat'; if ( join '', sort split(//, $word) eq join '', sort split(//, $to_be_matched ) ) { # Success! } else { # Failure }

Update - $ instead of @ on to_be_matched

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important

    if ( join '', sort split(//, $word) eq join '', sort split(//, $to_be_matched ) ) {
    if ( join('', sort split(//, $word)) eq join('', sort split(//, $to_be +_matched)) ) {
    (extra parenthesis added )

    After adding the parenthesis , i get "Success" (i.e. "bat" = "tab" based on your example), without them the result is "Failure"
