in reply to Re: Re: Check tag value
in thread Check tag value

You need a regular expression in your if-test. Start by doing:
perldoc perl
at a command prompt. You'll notice if you page down a little that there are these 2 perldocs listed for regular expressions:
perlre Perl regular expressions, the rest of the story perlreref Perl regular expressions quick reference
So, if you want to read the 1st one, you would do
perldoc perlre
at a command prompt. The 1st response to your question gave you a regular expression to try. Read the perldocs, try a regular expression, and post back if you still have problems.

    I can't seem to use perldoc
      What platform are you on?

      Besides accessing the perldocs on your own machine, which you seem to be having trouble with, you can also access the perdocs online at Here is the link for 'perlre':
