The snippet you posted, when run, displays Magnunm,Cobray,Ingram. Perhaps the code you posted isn't exactly the same as the code you're running.

The code you did post has several problems. I'm a little reluctant to address them since it seems like you've posted code that is different from the code you're running. Nevertheless, here are some tips:

  • The first line assigns a single string, "Magnunm,Cobray,Ingram" to an array. It will be stored in $name[0].
  • The second line interpolates @name into a string. There's only one element. The resulting scalar value is a string, which you assign to $name.
  • Next you test to see if $name contains text that matches Cobray. It does, of course. So you end up printing the entire string.

You'll have to tell us more about what you're starting with, and and what code you're actually running so we can nudge you in the right direction.
