Hi there,

I've got this problem with a routine in Perl. The code goes like this:

Code:

while($line = <FILE>) {
   if (length($line) < 2) {
      print("<br>");
   }
   elsif ( ($line =~ /\#/gi) and ($line !~ /Date/gi) ) {
      print $line."<br>";
   }
   elsif( ($line =~ /\#/gi) and ($line =~ /Date/gi) ){#this comparison
      &print_header($line);
   }
   else {   
      &print_line($line);
   }
}


The problem is that all the ifs work except for the one I signed. The line that it reads is in the form "# Date: Monday, 29 of November of 2004".
The comparison doesn't work...The previous one seems to work. If I put, for example, $line =~ /2004/gi intead of /Date/gi, it works!

Any ideas?

Kind regards,

Kepler
