Updated, I missed the multi-line part...added a s to my regexp
This actually ran? I would think the parser would have halted when it got to the </script> part...it should have ended the regex.

You probably want to try something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl -wl use strict; use warnings; my $test = "before script<script> stuff and more stuff \n stuff\nstuff +\nstuff</script> after script"; $test =~ s%<script>(.*?)</script>%%gs; print "Test is $test\n";
Which outputs:
./test.pl Test is before script after script
This uses a nifty trick, you can use (just about) anything for the start/end characters for a regexp/search-replace to avoid conflicts in the matching/replacing string. Here I have used the percent signs instead.

Have fun!
