in reply to regular expression issue

Perhaps I'm missing something obvious, but (in its most simplistic form) if

$x = "simon DeGauo" # aka current <INPUT> and $y= "simon DeGauo Henderson" # aka previous <INPUT>

how can there be any confusion?

If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

    I think you may have misunderstood the question.
    what i am after here was to be able to take a name and see if that particular patient is in the file for that doctor. simple enough. But i was trying to come up with a regex that is smarter that the common m//i;.

    JUST TO CLARIFY, IF YOU SEE A NAME IN THIS FILE THAT IS DIFFERENT IN ANY WAY. THEN IT IS GONNA BE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
