in reply to How to print the lines immediately above and below a matching line?

As far as i understood the basic theme is: "...match a specific part of a line and print the line above and below it, in full." Please correct me if i'm wrong.

I would do it like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Tie::File; # my $pattern = qr/(^4000.+)/; # my $pattern = qr/(^4001.+)/; my $pattern = qr/(^4002.+)/; # my $pattern = qr/(4003.+)/; # my $pattern = qr/(^4004.+)/; # my $pattern = qr/(^4005.+)/; tie my @lines, 'Tie::File', shift || die; my $idx = 0; for my $line(@lines){ print qq($idx $line\n); if( $line =~ m/($pattern)/ ){ if( $idx == 0){ print qq(Heuraka: $1 next: $lines[ ( $idx + 1) ]\n); }; if ( $idx == scalar( @lines - 1 ) ) { print qq(Heuraka: $1 previous: $lines[ ( $idx - 1 )] \n); }; if ( $idx ~~ [ 1..scalar( @lines - 2 ) ]) { print qq(Heuraka: $1 previous: $lines[ ( $idx - 1 ) ] next: +$lines[ ( $idx + 1 ) ]\n); }; } ++$idx; } untie @lines || die; __END__ Karls-Mac-mini:Desktop karl$ cat MyData.txt 4000_1#0 4001_1#1 4002_1#2 4003_1#3 4004_1#4 4005_1#5 Karls-Mac-mini:Desktop karl$ ./test.pl MyData.txt 0 4000_1#0 1 4001_1#1 2 4002_1#2 Heuraka: 4002_1#2 previous: 4001_1#1 next: 4003_1#3 3 4003_1#3 4 4004_1#4 5 4005_1#5
