Take a look at Perl regular expressions. There you'll find the information you need to get you started on regexps.

So, you have a regexp in that piece of code, and the and next; part is saying that, if the line that was read matches that condition, then you don't want to execute the rest of the code inside the while statement, you want to read a new line from input, meaning that the next code to be executed is while (<input>). That is to say, you go for another cycle of the while loop.

    [GotToBTru]: ve been looking at a document we have been sending to a customer for years now
    [MidLifeXis]: We don't, at least in this case ;-)
    [GotToBTru]: and it includes a reference number that I didnt recognize
    [GotToBTru]: I had to dig into the code to find out where it came from .. and it makes no sense
    [GotToBTru]: so I emailed my contact asking if we could just stop sending it .. I'm afraid she is going to ask "what is that anyway?"
