Sonya777 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need help with an edit of a .txt file. I want to replace a part of the string with an empty space (i.e. remove the part of the string).
I have many lines like this one:
And from this line I want to remove the bolded string. To do this for many lines, basically I need to remove a part of the string that starts with:

Thanks a lot!
