in reply to how to use "NOT" in regex

can't you match the strings that start with those two words and then negate the condition? makes more sense to me as a regexp

if (!/^($word1|$word2)/) { # code }

[stevieb]: I stated I use IDEA for Perl work, and at work, licensed version of PyCharm
[beech]: is that a good thing?
[stevieb]: absolutely. Free professional IDEs and related software for all the langs I write in, and I wanted CLion because it's a C IDE that can communicate directly with an Arduino
