I downvoted your post, and I'll tell you why - IT'S WRONG! Why would you give somebody a regex solution when they clearly need to test for equality!? What if $index contained regex metacharacters? In short, I think it's a bad habit to use an anchored regex when you mean "equals". perl provides us with == and eq for a reason. Use them.
