You could eliminate $number and add o to the area code match. Just check the whole line for the are code.

LISTING: while(<DATA>) { next LISTING unless /$area_code/o; # store the state/province my ($state) = m/^(\D+)/; print "$area_code: $state\n"; # once we have a match, don't continue # through the whole list last LISTING; }
