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-"; my $patch = "patch-"; if ($str =~/$patch/ms) { print "Yes \n"; }
      thats the way it works

      DB<105> $str = "update\npatch-"; => "update\npatch-" DB<106> $patch = "patch-" => "patch-" DB<107> $str =~/\Q$patch/ => 1

      $patch must be included in $str not vice versa.

      No need for multiline because your pattern doesn't span multiple lines.

      '\Q' assures that regex syntax like '.' is escaped.

      Along the lines of your initial code:

      use strict; use warnings; my $PatchPath = "patch-"; my $output = "update patch-"; my @array = split /\s+/, $output; if ( grep { $PatchPath =~ /$_/ } @array ) { print "Match found\n"; }

      SORRY: This post is somehow to far up in the chain. Should be a few posts further down...
