Easy peasy, just print the line unless $lines =~ /\//; :)

And you didn't even know bears could type.

    Whew! Easy peasy for you oh wise one!
    open (OUTFILE, ">>c:\/perl\/project\/archive.txt"); print OUTFILE "$lines" unless $lines =~ /\//; #works! thanks Lawliet! close OUTFILE;
    Many thanks! I feel much better since i stopped banging my head against all those perl books.
    Your humble and grateful servant,

      Wow, I may have to start helping more people if this is the response I get! Thank you for the laud (is 'laud' use correctly there?) but I must say that ikegami's reply humbles even the great Lawliet. A one-liner that can replace your whole program!

      Of course, one could say that I realized your lack of expertise in the matter and suggested a solution that you can grasp and therefore learn; expanding your knowledge of Perl and enabling you to teach others. In that case, you would be completely correct in thanking me and citing me in your program. :)

      Also, note that it was I who bravely /msg'd ikegami to inform him of his lack-of-negation in his original node.

      And now back to my normal, un-self-centered life. I am not that egotistical in real life, by the way. I really have no reason to be :P

      And you didn't even know bears could type.
