in reply to Usage of grep on a file

First of all, use qr// to precompile your patterns:

my @compiled_patterns = map { qx/$_/ } @matcharray;

Also don't slurp the file into an array. Use something more memory-efficient:

OUTER: while (my $line = <$file>) { INNER: for my $pattern (@compiled_patterns) { print $line, last INNER if $line =~ $pattern; } }

Cheers, Flo

    Your text says "qr//" but your code says "qx//". Using qx// in this situation could prove very interesting! :-)
