How about doing it more directly? The obvious solution seems to be to compare against /test|Test|tEst|.../. The glob function will help to create such a pattern:

use strict; use warnings; my $pat = "test"; $pat = join "|", glob join "", map { "{".uc.",".lc."}"} split //, $pat +; print "$pat\n"; for ( qw( Test test tesT tast ) ) { print "$_\n" if /$pat/; }
