regex doubt

I am just a beginner exploring perl and sorry if this is a silly question.
I open a file and split by tab and check for the 11th column string as below:

I am checking whether a string contains a word chr inside a if loop as below:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if (($v[10] =~ m/chr/i)) {
  3. //execute
  4. }
How to check if no chr is present in the string now. It is completely a reversed one. Thanks.

  3. //execute

There is no need for the double set of parentheses:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if (($v[10] !~ m/chr/i)) { 
should be:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if ($v[10] !~ m/chr/i) {
