In the definition of a ployA tail it says "as a string of length 10 or greater containing only 'A' or 'N' if you erase all unwanted characters then some 'A's and 'N's that weren't together before might come together. Also note that you probably want to match against [AN]{10,} so that if there are more than 10 A's or N's in a row the match does not fail. Also, MiamiGenome wanted the filenames. This modified version of your code might work a little better:
# if your file extension is not .txt change it to whatever is approria +te while (my $filename=<*.txt>){ # Open the file and slurp the contents to a string. open FILE, $filename || die "Cannot open '$filename' for reading: $! +\n"; my $file = do { $\ = undef; <FILE> }; close FILE; # If a 'polyA' sequence is found print the file name. if ($file =~ /[AN]{10,}/) { print "$filename has a polyA tail sequence\n"; } }

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.
