Answer: How do I compare two strings?
Depends on what kind of comparision: Strings can be tested for the following
Equality - the eq operator
Inequality - the ne operator
Greater Than - the gt operator
Greater or Equal - the ge operator
Less than - the lt operator
Less of Equal - the le operator
$stringtest = ($string1 eq $string2);
Try replacing eq with the other operators.
