Pattern matching in Perl

I am intnterested in processing files that match the form

wgdisb_s_*.zip           or     wgdisb_m_*.zip

please help me contruct the pattern match in Perl.

This is what I have coded
if (($name =~ /wgdisb_m_*.zip/) ||                      
           ($name =~ /wgdisb_s_*.zip/)) {                      
           print "name of file to get $name\n";  

does not seem to work, please help new to pattern matching.

Thanks! Thanks! Many Thanks! in advance.

if ($name =~ /wgdisb_(s|m)_.*\.zip/) {
  print "Filename = $name\n";

replace .* to +* if it's matching 1 or more.
