in reply to pattern match on entire file

Howdy. You're almost there, it's just the way you're using the file that's giving you trouble. You should open the file once for reading, slurp in the @file array, close the file, and then open it again for appending (if necessary) to write the $tempName var. I'd think you'd want something like this:

$tempName= $query->param('searchText'); #user supplied open (FILE, "filename"); @file = <FILE>; close FILE; $temp = join('',@file); $temp =~ /$tempName/s; if ($temp eq '') { open FILE, ">>filename"; print FILE $tempName . "\n"; } close (FILE);
