Hi, you're code:
if ( $Lines eq "<NumberofDays>\d+</NumberofDays>" )
should be something like:
if ( $Lines =~ m|<NumberofDays>(\d+)</NumberofDays>| )
3 differences between your and my line:
  • eq vs. =~
  • to compare against a regular expression you use =~
  • the regular expression is in 'm|' and '|' characters
  • This is to make clear you are using a regular expression
  • the \d+ is in '(' and ')' characters
  • This is used to 'capture' the value of the expression inbetween them. In this case it would capture the value in $1. The rule is the first ()-match is captured in $1, the second in $2 etc. So in your code you could continue with something like
    print $1
Hope this helps getting you started. For documentation on regular expressions there are 2 good tutorials that come with perl that were not mentioned here: perlrequick perlretut

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.
