in reply to Re: case insensitive filename matching
in thread case insensitive filename matching

$newfile =~ /^$oldfile$/i

As much as I like regexps, I would be much more likely to write that as:

if ( lc $newfile eq lc $oldfile )

In my eyes, that's the canonical case-insensitive equality comparision.
