The following code prints "no". #!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; use Readonly; Readonly my $VAR => 'SEARCH'; # my $VAR = 'SEARCH'; # using this line will cause the code # to print "yes" foreach my $var ($VAR) { print +($var eq $VAR) ? 'yes' : 'no'; } The only reason I don't rate this as critical is that there is a workaround: print +(lc $var eq lc $VAR) ? 'yes' : 'no'; Cheers, Ovid Kinetic $ perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 8 subversion 7) configuration: Platform: osname=darwin, osvers=7.9.0, archname=darwin-2level uname='darwin curtis-poes-computer.local 7.9.0 darwin kernel version 7.9.0: wed mar 30 20:11:17 pst 2005; root:xnuxnu-517.12.7.obj~1release_ppc power macintosh powerpc ' config_args='-de' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=define usethreads=undef use5005threads=undef useithreads=undef usemultiplicity=undef useperlio=define d_sfio=undef uselargefiles=define usesocks=undef use64bitint=undef use64bitall=undef uselongdouble=undef usemymalloc=n, bincompat5005=undef Compiler: cc='cc', ccflags ='-fno-common -DPERL_DARWIN -no-cpp-precomp -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include', optimize='-Os', cppflags='-no-cpp-precomp -fno-common -DPERL_DARWIN -no-cpp-precomp -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include' ccversion='', gccversion='3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1666)', gccosandvers='' intsize=4, longsize=4, ptrsize=4, doublesize=8, byteorder=4321 d_longlong=define, longlongsize=8, d_longdbl=define, longdblsize=8 ivtype='long', ivsize=4, nvtype='double', nvsize=8, Off_t='off_t', lseeksize=8 alignbytes=8, prototype=define Linker and Libraries: ld='env MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.3 cc', ldflags =' -L/usr/local/lib' libpth=/usr/local/lib /usr/lib libs=-ldbm -ldl -lm -lc perllibs=-ldl -lm -lc libc=/usr/lib/libc.dylib, so=dylib, useshrplib=false, libperl=libperl.a gnulibc_version='' Dynamic Linking: dlsrc=dl_dyld.xs, dlext=bundle, d_dlsymun=undef, ccdlflags=' ' cccdlflags=' ', lddlflags=' -bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup -L/usr/local/lib' Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): Compile-time options: USE_LARGE_FILES Built under darwin Compiled at Jul 12 2005 12:10:35 %ENV: PERL5LIB="/sw/lib/perl5:/sw/lib/perl5/darwin" @INC: /sw/lib/perl5 /sw/lib/perl5/darwin /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/darwin-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/darwin-2level /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl
