in thread How to grep exact string

My suggested grep has been correct Perl syntax since Perl 5.0. (Perhaps before?)

Note there are no parentheses after the grep... not this:

grep({ ... } @list)

And note that there's no comma after the block... not this:

grep { ... }, @list

It just needs to be like this:

grep { ... } @list

If you really want parentheses, they can go on the outside:

(grep { ... } @list)
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    I think what is breaking it for me is the $_ eq $unique. When I include that, real matches don't register as matches.

    EDIT: nevermind... typo.
