There's no restraints on these techniques. The words needn't be unique in the string nor do they have to be of equal length.

Solution 1: Cancel out common elements.

use List::Util qw/ first /; my %count; $count{$_}++ for split /,/, $str1; $count{$_}-- for split /,/, $str2; my $different = defined first { $_ } values %count;
The last line says that they're different if there is any value that is non-zero, i.e. any element not cancelled out.

Solution 2: Use &Test::More::eq_array

require Test::More; my $equal = Test::More::eq_array( [ split ',', $str1 ], [ split ',', $str2 ], );


See perltoc if you don't know which perldoc to read!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
