in thread Comparing against multiple values

i don't know how to reply to the whole thread so i have used the last answer, sorry for that. if ($foo=~/$bar|$baz|$boo/){ is not strictly equivalent to if (($foo eq $bar) || ($foo eq $baz) || ($foo eq $boo)){ as =~ will be true for $foo=abc and $boo=ab but "abc" will not be eq to "ab" if you want them to be strictly equivalent then it will be something like : if ($foo=~/^$bar$|^$baz$|^$boo$/){ i have tested with string values but not with $var so maybe there is some \ to use at the good places for this to work regards.
