in thread Perl RE; how to capture, and replace based on a block?

Thanks Laurent_R for the help.

Your example helps better explain why I got the impression Perl was not greedy, the way sed is. Most all the examples I read in the perldocs, used .*?. But my experiments, and re-training myself with Perl RE's. Seems to show, once I get out of the sed habits. Perl will be a lot more flexible, and powerful. I should have started this a l-o-o-n-g time ago. :P

Thanks again, Laurent_R. I really appreciate it.

Yes. What say about me, is true.
