in reply to Problem with regex passed to a hash

did you try doublequotes instead of singlequotes?

    Thanks very much! It worked.

    It looks like with single quotes I passing the regex as is, with no variable interpolation.

      > It looks like with single quotes I passing the regex as is

      not exactly. your passing the variable's symbol.

      Seems like that module does an eval on the string you pass.

      So passing in singelquotes means that eval '/$username/' fails because $username is unknown in the module's namespace.

      Cheers Rolf
