This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Index looks for one substring in another but "without the wild card behaviour of regular expressions" according to the Perl manual - perldoc -f index.  

It's the lack of wild card facilities that's causing your match to fail.
