Hi,

I am newbie in Perl.This might be a simpler question for most of you, but i would appreciate if you answer it.

I need to search and grep only those lines from the file, which start with particular string...

Let's say,if i have 2-3 lines like this in any file...
#hello: what is 
#hello: who is
hello :  hi


i need to select only the line which start with "hello" not with "#"..

I did search and tried the some reg exp with grep and other finctions but no luck yet...

Thanks in advace..
