Can I do a "AND NOT =" in a Regular Expression

I have an application which allows me to select records by entering a
Regular Expression in a field. With the following I can select all records
where pool = PHL-DP OR desc ends in NP, but what I need it where pool =
PHL-DP AND desc does NOT end in NP. Basically I want to exclude those
records with an NP at the end of the desc field. Can this be done with a
RE?

Thank you!
Tim

m/(^pool=PHL-DP)|(^desc=NP$)/m

Should be very easy, something along the line (untested):

($pool eq 'PHL-DP' and ! $desc=~m/NP$/)
