search for string

Hi,

I'm storing names (fullname and synonym1) into a hash like below:

$MyHash{$Id} = {id => $Id, fullName => $FullName, synonym1 => $Synonym1};

How can I search whether a string is found in the fullname or synonym1 ?

Eg.

$String = "Bill"
if "Bill" exist in fullname or synonym1 return true

Thanks,
Nick
