It appears that you want to know if all the elements in one string are in the other.

Assumptions: the following strings will match:
- "cake,cake,patty", "cake,patty,cake"
- "bread,water", "water,bread"
The following strings won't match:
- "cake,cake,patty", "patty,cake"
- "brad,water", "water,bread"

# check_strings - takes two parameters, returns true if same sub check_strings( $ $ ) { # arguments my ( $string1, $string2 ) = @_; my @elements1 = sort split(',',$string1); my @elements2 = sort split(',',$string2); if ( scalar(@elements1) <=> scalar(@elements2) ) { return( undef ); # differing number of elements } for ( my $i = 0; $i < scalar(@elements1); $i++ ) { if ( $elements1[$i] cmp $elements2[$i] ) { return( undef ); # element differs } } return( 1 ); # elements are all the same }

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.
