in reply to Regex Ignore Case

If I've read the question right, a sensible way to do this is to use the i modifier, dependent upon a command-line parameter.

if ($case == 0) { $foo =~ s/INSERTREGEXHERE/i; } else { $foo =~ s/INSERTREGEXHERE/; }

In the case where we have stored our command line switch from @ARGV in $case as a binary flag - 0 for case-insensitive and 1 for case sensitive.

Is this what your looking for?
