in reply to searching problem

You can create a regex that matches any of the reversed words:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my @words = qw(mamy dady bal foo bar ymamaa arabic); my $regex = join '|', map scalar reverse, @words; $regex = qr/$regex/; print "$_\n" for grep /$regex/, @words;

    A small simplification:
    my $regex = reverse join '|', @words;

    The way I understood the OP was print out the word which when in reverse matches any other word. Your solution does the opposite. For example instead of printing bar since 'rab' matches in arabic, it prints arabic. ymamaa was also printed since 'mamy' in reverse matches it. My point is that arabic in reverse doesn't match anything.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my @words = qw(mamy dady bal foo bar xrabbit ymamaa arabic); my $list = join ' ', @words; foreach( @words ) { my $rev = reverse $_; print "$_\n" if $list =~ /$rev/; } __END__ mamy bar
