in thread How to look for two different file extensions?

There is *always* more than one way to do it. That doesn't mean every post should contain all of them. In particular throwing out a regexp with non-basic syntax but no explanation doesn't seem like it will make things clearer for the novice.

There are regexes in the OP's code, and regexes are a pretty core part of "thinking perl", so i think /AN/ answer including regex would be useful. But at the same time, how helpful is it to complain about someone elses answer like that? Why not just make a post with an explanation? Anyway.

So heres an explanation:

$FileExt =~/ # "file extension matches ...." \A # the start of the variable \. # match a literal dot (?: # begin a set of options foo # the option itself | # OR bar # another option ) # end of option group \z # end of variable /x; # end of pattern, enable comments in the r +egex
