in thread Comparing 2 arrays but ignoring certain patterns

ur script is great, but my @testlist and @removelist may contain more than one word such as:

ctahci_sip11cs_devslp_deto_exp:50:seed ctahci_sip11cs_devslp_deto_exp2:50:seed
therefore the code will assume it is same when one word is matching. How to deal with this?

    You will need to test out the conditions you expect to work, and define your problem more clearly.

    I tested the patterns you proposed with my code - it works fine.

    If it does not meet your requirements, as I said in my previous post - feel free to modify the regular expression to work with your requirements.

                 I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.

    I don't understand, especially where you say

    ... @removelist may contain more than one word such as:
    ctahci_sip11cs_devslp_deto_exp:50:seed
    ctahci_sip11cs_devslp_deto_exp2:50:seed

    The string  'ctahci_sip11cs_devslp_deto_exp:50:seed' doesn't look like anything appearing in the  @removelist array in your OPed example code. Can you give an example of data for which NetWallah's code fails?
