Perl if statement issue


if ( ( ( $val eq "ssd_max_throttle" ) || ( $val eq "ssd_io_time" ) ) && ( $proc eq "i386" ) ) {
print "im in";
next CONFLINE;
}

The code never goes in to the braces, even though $proc is i386,
and when the larger code parses thru values of Solaris kernel variables, and $var becomes ssd_max_throttle and then ssd_io_time.

If I eliminate the && ( test for $proc ) it goes into the braces.
I have printed out proc just outside this statement, and it is getting set as i386.

What am I doing wrong with this if statement ?

I don't see any reason why that shouldn't work. First off, check your assumptions about your variables - have you had it print all three every time right before it hits that if?

I believe there's a 'mark thread closed' under thread tools. You might want to hit that for the benefit of other people here.
