in thread filehandle regex

Thanks for the solution it works!! One thing I don't understand why we are using my $prev = ""; also $prev = $_; due to which I am getting previous line from the file

What's the magic behind it

    Yes, it will also work, but then the script will not run under use strict;.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    The my $prev part is there to properly declare the variable. The = "" is there to not have warnings if the first line actually matches. The ; is there to separate statements.
