Hi every1..
I m facing a great deal of problem in simple pattern matching between
sequence & a pattern ..Program shod be designed such a way that it shod be
able do two things 1) normal matching...For eg: GATCAAT....if TC is
entered... output shod be 2...2) matching using spl character..In same
example if C*T value is entered It shod give o/p as 3 & seq to b displayed
is CAAT..I m easily getting 1st part...But in 2nd part Its giving sum
problem..output I m gettin as 1 instead of 3...Code is really simple!

$alphabet = "GATCAAT";
$pattern=  "C*T ";

$alphabet =~ /($pattern)/i;

print "The entire '$pattern' match began at $-[0] and ended at $+[0]\n";

The entire C*T match began at 1 and ended at 2

but the o/p shod be 3????
& Is there n e chance I can get seq too..I mean instead of C*T'' i need

Well..Its not compulsion to use regex....But I find it quite simple..can
there be n e other method??

Thanx in advance!
