in reply to Re: grep { $var } @arr
in thread grep { $var } @arr

/$pat/g

Perhaps I've misunderstood but with my current $var, using /$pat/g will result in no matches (with or without the 'g' modifier). As far as I know, this will look for the literal string of '$_ < 3' on my array, as written below (appending to the initial script).

@res = grep {/$pat/g} @arr; print "Search:\t@res\n";

This finds none of the elements of @arr.
