Why do you have so many commas in your character class?

    Aren't you supposed to comma separate unsimilar items like that? I don't use regexes all that often but I did test the script and it worked.

      No, you aren't. Thus the reason that your a-z0-9 works fine. As a contribution to the thread:
      # cat match.pl #!/usr/bin/perl -l while (<DATA>) { chomp; print "$_ " . (/[^a-z0-9!\@#\$%^&*(),.?~:;<>+ =_'"-]/ ? "contains w +eird stuff":"is fine"); } __DATA__ funky town ^-^ b* f1 top` # perl match.pl funky town is fine ^-^ is fine b* is fine f1 is fine top` contains weird stuff #
        I thought a-z0-9 was different because you're given a range of characters instead of singly adding them yourself.

        Thanks for correcting my code though.
