You have the matcing correct, but you did not save any of the data you matched. You may want to take a look at the perlre man page, in praticular what parenthesis are for. Something like the follwing (untested) code :

while (<DATA>) { if ($_ =~ /^(\d+\s+\[\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+\]\s+[\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+\]) +/) { print "Match=$1\n"; } }

The addition of getting the field is an excersize left to the reader.

from the frivolous to the serious
