what i am doing is looking in the $label variable and if i get a label that ends with igb.appls.slrc-object i say all is OK.

if not i print Error.


Here is the code snippet. Add this after $label = `idlcall $NROID get_all '"Rcl" 100';

if ($label=~ /^(.*)igb\.appls\.slrc-object$/){
  print "OK!!\n";
}else{
  print "Error\n";
}

#retrieving the label and OID for each Remote Control Entry
foreach $label_and_OID (@RCs[$n])  
{
   $label= `idlcall $NROID get_all '"Rcl" 100'`;
}

now can i stick your above code in my foreach loop or outside the loop

thanks....  i am thinking outside but i DONT WANT TO LOOSE ANY VALUES in the $Label.
what do u think? thanks...

there you go. now that should work.

the if statement that i have provided, uses $label in a READ-ONLY context. Therefore you will NOT loose anything from $label.
