in reply to I work...

... I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline stapler to the Boston Stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much...

So I think I'm currently working from Storage Room B.

Actually, I'm not sure how to describe where I work... but there's a sign on the door that says, "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here."

There is no peace for the wicked, I guess.

[Cosmic37]: if ( $line =~ /$mydt/ ) { print $line; }
[Cosmic37]: I try to match successive date times stored in variable $mydt
[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
[Cosmic37]: you are right $mydt did not contain what I expected... :-D I will now think :-D
