in reply to Multiline match

Whatever you are trying: "patch-5.1.1.21510.gpg" will not match to your $output because of the ".gpg" extension...

    patch-5.1.1.21510 is a substring of patch-5.1.1.21510.gpg, hence it should match. All it wants to match is patch-5.1.1.21510, it doesnt care about gpg

      hdb's point was your code boils down to 'patch-5.1.1.21510' =~ /patch-5.1.1.21510.gpg/;, which is backwards from what you need. The behavior you seek would look more like

      my @array = split('\n',$output); if ( grep { 'patch-5.1.1.21510.gpg' =~ /\Q$_\E/ } @array ) { print "Match found\n"; }
      Though, as implemented, you'd have problems because of whitespace. For this case, you'd probably be better off using index.

      #11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

        Exactly!



      But your explanation was the other way round.

      plz try to show us a reproducible code example instead of wording.

        Sorry about the confusion, the following is the code I have been trying
        my $str = "update patch-5.1.1.21510"; my $patch = "patch-5.1.1.21510.gpg"; if ($str =~/$patch/ms) { print "Yes \n"; }
