in reply to find words in array

Here is an example using pattern matching, if your looking to see if the word is contained within any elements of the array

use v5.14; chomp(my $word = <STDIN>); #get word from command line #chomp removes newline for search foreach my $name(@array){ #loop through names if($name =~ m/$word/i){ #if the word is contained within say $name; # print out the name with a newline (say) } }

otherwise, if your looking for exact maches just do something like this.

use v5.14; chomp(my $word = <STDIN>); foreach my $name(@array){ if($name eq $word){ #if the name equals the word say $name; } }
