Try chomp on what you read from the file.

    sorry my formatting was so poor. If you look closely at the reformatted post, you will find chomp is there. Thanks for the reply. Corwin
      In the end, it turned out there was a whitespace character at the end of the string. I guess the moral of this story is - you can never be too careful about testing your input, and never assume you know what's in your data. Thanks for all your help everyone. Corwin

        I have long advocated using s/\s+$// over chomp because I consider anything where trailing whitespace matters to simply be broken (it also is useful in that it prevents a stray "\r\n" line ending from being a problem).
