perl regex help

i'm thinking of adding another filter to spamassasin to catch spam with relly long subjects.

what I want to do is return true if the number of characters is over 150 long - does this look correct?

I've not really played with SpamAssasin much, but can't you use length() ?

length($var) > 150

hi andy - it's actually going in one of the settings files used by mimedefang, not spamassassin, and that uses regular expressions to match against. You basically just specify which part of the message to match against, supply the regex to use, and allocate a score if it matches. So my regex is just to say if it's over X number of characters then return true for positive match.
