in thread Multiline match

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"; }

    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.

    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...
