searching the exact term

Posted by rkonduri (rkonduri), 13 September 2007

I have stored the var,var1,var2

set var {abc/def[0][1]}
set var1 {abc/def}
set var2 {abc/def[0]}

regexp $var1 $var
regexp $var2 $var

Can any one suggest me How to search the word with special character like this?

Put a \ in front of the [ and a \ in front of the ] in the regular expression.  That way you'll match them exactly rather that looking for "any character in the list 0" which is what it currently says.
