Below two lines sample for this.I need to ignore if "Regulation 2" in File A and "RG 2" in File B
i tried with pattern matching i am not getting
Optometrists and Opticians (simple) Regulations, Cap. 500A, RG 2
OPTOMETRISTS AND OPTICIANS (SIMPLE) REGULATIONS, Cap. 500A, Regulation 2
$vldbString =~ s/Regulation\s+(\d+)\s*$/RG $1/g; --- tried not working
