"be consistent"

Comment on

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
So I have the below code. I know there are some extra bits, but it is not behaving how i would like. basically I have a file i am reading in, then a second file read in, and looping through and saying that if a line in XML contains anything from a line in DOMAIN, set a variable to nothing and exit the innermost loop. But the problem is that nothing ever matches. If I replace the $cleanedDomain line with a literal, it matches. The XML file is xml and the domains file is just a list of domain names... It looks right to me but i think i am missing something.
use strict; use warnings; my $linexml; my $cleanedXML; my $cleanedDomain; open (XML, 'domainList.xml'); while (my $xmlline = <XML>) { $linexml = $xmlline; $cleanedXML = quotemeta $xmlline; open (DOMAINS, 'dead_domains.txt'); while (my $domainline = <DOMAINS>) { $cleanedDomain = quotemeta $domainline; if ($cleanedXML =~ m/$cleanedDomain/) { $linexml = ''; last;} } close (DOMAINS); open (MYFILE, '>>new_domainList.xml'); print MYFILE "$linexml"; close (MYFILE); } close (XML);
