in reply to regexp exclude a string

Hi Murcia,

If i understand your question correctly, Here is my code.

#get the files under a directory using readdir or glob. my @a = qw(text1 text2 text3);# filenames in an array. my @found; foreach my $a (@a) { my $FH; open ($FH, $a) or die ("unable to open $a: $!\n"); while (<$FH>) { if (m/green|blue|red/ && !m/green red blue/) { push @found ,$a; last; } } close $FH; } print $_,$/ for (@found);

    And if I understand his question correctly, this will fail if he has "this is green and yellow" on one line in a file and "green red blue" on the next one.
