in thread read string (which is in binary) and make decision

Thank you very much Count Zero for prompt. Really appreciate the help. the code works great... I have used it in reg ex actually because my perl set up does not recongize Modern::Perl line. downloaded from CPAN , but then install was complaining on other modules missing (Build, Metadata....) . downloaded all of them, did install but still the install on Modern package complains. is there a single place where I can install the whole package? thanks Natasa

    It will be very helpful to your learning experience if you have access to a Perl installation that allows downloading and installation of CPAN modules. It will be worth some effort to achieve this.

    However, for the purposes of running CountZero's example code, the two most important modules ('pragmas' in Perlish) to use in place of Modern::Perl and at the beginning of all code are
        use warnings;
        use strict;
    (IMHO). If your Perl installation does not offer these fundamental modules, it should be considered seriously b0rken.

    In addition to using the above-mentioned modules (pragmata), you will also need to either replace the  say() function with some variation of the print built-in, e.g.
        print $string, 'string', ..., "\n";
    or else enable the feature via the feature pragma:
        use feature 'say';
    in Perl versions 5.10+.

    What kind and version of Perl are you using on what OS?


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
