Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello, I am new to perl and i am seeking to find an appropriate way to match a pattern exactly. The pattern that i need to match is '+000000'. I am not sure if $a =~ s/\+\d\d\d\d\d\d/ ; will do. I need to check for six (6) digits after the '+'. please advice.
