Searching for a specific pattern.by Anonymous Monk
|on Jun 18, 2010 at 19:15 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I working on a code and I have to search for a specific letters code coming from a file, the values I am checking against are: XLX or TLX or XLT or LX.
I am doinf a simple check like this:
I know that this wouldn't work because all the other letter codes has the "LX" in them, that would fail, correct?
I am doing this way:
Is this way the more reliable way to get "LX" by using word boundary or there is a better and more efficient way to do this?
Thanks for the help!
