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"; }

    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...

    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.
