I agree with jethro: code tags would help.
One thing I do not understand is that it looks as if you are looping through the file, but match against a constant $string.
Also you should be using
in your code, especially if you're just starting with perl. They do help a lot.
In your code there is one thing (if I read it right): Your variable $string starts with an opening parenthesis, but you anchor your match to start without it.
So either change (added quotes around the $string assignment, updated m//) code to
or get rid of the outermost pair of parenthesis.
