( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
ok another question, this one even more newbie-ish... i took crazyinsomniac's advice and checked out the perlfaq but i couldn't find the answer... i also checked out the function listing though and it turned out the index() function but more on that later...

now what i actually want to do is to check if a particular string contains this substring at this particular position... well the index() function looks like the strpos() function in PHP (yes i'm a PHP'er :P) but i'm thinking it wouldn't really help here since i wanted to know if the substing existed only at that particular position (positions actually)... can anyone tell me how i can do this? a regexp? or is there a built-in function that would be more efficient?

thanks in advance!

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.
