in thread Why does this happen?

if ($input eq $matching[0||1||2]) {die "bastard\n"};
which means exactly the same as:
if ($input eq $matching[1]) {die "bastard\n"};
Were you expecting it to mean something different, especially since you said it "works"? In what manner did you mean "works"?

    ahh - I only tested it with $matching[1]. Oops. /me goes red!

    The lesson is... test, test, test - especially if you do something like I did that you've never seen anyone else do (usually for good reason!)
