in reply to Same pattern match different lines

Never mind I'm dumb I figured it out.

$para is the input variable for what text file I tell the script to read as input. I was telling it to read $lines whatever number from @lines limited by a match on a paragraph heading. Of course it's going to give me errors if it's matching the paragraph heading from each paragraph and the ($msisdn) isn't where it expected it to be. It needs to read from the whole file. With $para I just tell it to look in each paragraph for the ($msisdn) $/ already did all the work. I was telling it to be to exact. I was telling the script look on this line when I should've been saying look in each paragraph if you match this and this then print. Instead I was telling the script look for a match on these lines (I didn't even tell it to look through paragraphs I was just telling the script to look for matches on lines. God I feel dumb...I am dumb for making that mistake. I just had to sit back and realize that it was a simple answer. Aren't those the hardest ones though...The thing that gets overlooked. Sorry to bother everyone.

PS. I think it's kind of BS. to get minus points for readability edits but hey I guess you do what you gotta do.
