How do I make something case insensitive?
Say, if

$variable1 = "Hello";
$variable2 = "HELLO";

How can I tell if variable1 and variable 2 are the same, even though one is totally capitalized, and the other isn't?

Thanks,
Mark

if (lc($variable1) eq lc($variable2)) {
  # I don't know is the "correct" way of doing it, but it works...
}
