in reply to how to write multi-line regex

Try this:

#! perl -slw use strict; $/ = ''; # Paragraph mode while (<DATA>) { if( /TEXT;\s+?LAYER 13[1-7];.+?STRING\s+(\S+)/s ) { print $1; } else{ print "not found!\n"; } } __DATA__ TEXT; LAYER 133; TEXTTYPE 0; PRESENTATION 0,2,0; STRANS 0,0,0; XY 1; X: 91410; Y: 50020; STRING AVDD12; ENDEL; BOUNDARY; LAYER 108; DATATYPE 0; XY 5; X: 0; Y: 0; X: 0; Y: 53530; X: 91410; Y: 53530; X: 91410; Y: 0; X: 0; Y: 0;


C:\test> AVDD12; not found!
