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"; }

      Along the lines of your initial code:

      use strict; use warnings; my $PatchPath = "patch-5.1.1.21510.gpg"; my $output = "update patch-5.1.1.21510"; 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...

      thats the way it works

      DB<105> $str = "update\npatch-5.1.1.21510.pgp"; => "update\npatch-5.1.1.21510.pgp" DB<106> $patch = "patch-5.1.1.21510" => "patch-5.1.1.21510" 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.

      Cheers Rolf
