in thread Multiline match

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.
