Hi All,

Thanks for the feedback, but I need to be bothered about order, so I
have decided to use an iterator

   t = $ie.table(:index, '2').to_a.flatten
   t.each {|a|
             p "table #{a}"
             p "line #{line}"
             if /line/ =~ a; p 'match' else; p 'not match'; end
        }

however I can not match the two objects, when the ouput shows
"table HINCKLEY"
"line HINCKLEY "
"not match"
"table HINTON ST GEORGE"
"line HINTON ST GEORGE"

cheers

ps I thought it was initially the trailing whitespace; that is why I
have RegEx'ed the var 'line'.
