Hi Kcott

There's not a lot to do to be fair, I need to remove the extension because I have files with the same name but different extensions. I'm trying to read them in and compare the different files. So I thought if I remove the extension in the array I can do something like this

#! /usr/bin/perl -w my @files= <*.in> for (@files) { remove extension } for my $file (@files) { open (IN, "<", "$file.fo") || die ("cannot open $file.fo"); open (OUT,"<", "$file.bo") || die ("cannot open $file.bo"); undef $/; my $in = <IN>; my $out = <OUT>; my @in = split /\n/, $in; my @out = split /\n/, $out; my @final; for $a (@in) { my @result = grep/^\Q$a\E$/, @out; push (@final , @result); } print "Search string that matches against general data:\t@final"; }
I hope this makes a little more sense.
