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);

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
