Hi,

#returns an array of lines
$job->body; 

Open in new window


I want to assign the output of the previous line to a variable or array and then check if there is any line in the job body that has 'gMyFile' string in it.

How can I make it in Perl?

Thanks,

my @lines = $job->body;
my @matched = grep /gMyFile/, @lines;
print "these lines matched:\n", join("\n", @matched), "\n";
