in reply to Checking value of an extracted variable

Please show the code you have written so far.

using split I am able to extract the SEL_BLOCK keyword. But the issue is I am unable to check the value of SEL_BLOCK

This surprises me. You seem to have come far enough to extract the string on the left of the = sign, why can't you work with the string on right of the = sign?

    My code is shown below. After locating the keyword(stored in $first) I need to check the value of the variable stored in $first. $first = SEL_BLOCK. But I need to check the value of the SEL_BLOCK. How can it be done?

    open(OUT,">Output.txt") or die "Can't open output.txt for writing:$!\n +"; open(IN, "<Input.txt") or die "Can't open input.txt for reading:$!\n"; @array = <IN>; foreach $line (@array) { chomp ($line); if ($line =~ /^OPT:/) { $var = $'; @param = split / /, $var; $first = $param[1]; print "$first\n"; if ($first==1) { # This is not working as desired $start = 1; } else { $skip = 1; } } elsif ($start == 1 || $skip==1) { if ($line =~ /^]/) { $start = 0; $skip = 0; } elsif ($skip == 0) { printf (OUT "$line\n"); } } else { printf (OUT "$line\n"); } }
      I also like to point out that in the input file the keyword will be declared as below
      Input.txt(input file) OPT: SEL_BLOCK [ some text to be copied to output file if SEL_BLOCK = 1 ]

      SEL_BLOCK will be defined in a config file which can be included in the perl script. The script will have visibilty of the value of SEL_BLOCK and take appropriate actions(copying contents from input to output file).
