in thread Multiline match

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.
