Multiple conditions on a while loop

P: 1
Hi All,

Can anyone help me how to give multiple conditions in a while loop in perl.

For example i have a while loop for which the value of a variable is A or B it should not enter in to the while loop.

Basically i need the condition in the while loop should contains "||". Is it possible?

If not can anyone suggest me an alternative

Thanks & Regards

while($_=~/^#/) {
next LOOP;

Your original premise is not entirely clear. However, maybe this is what you're talking about:

  1. while ($var ne 'A' && $var ne 'B') {
  2.     # do something
  3. }
