in reply to Placing text onto multiple lines

This works for me:

use strict; while (<DATA>) { chomp(); my ($first, @rest) = split "<job>"; print "$first<job>$_\n" for @rest; } __DATA__ John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Clean-up John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Clean-up <job>Manager Books John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Clean-up <job>Manager Books <job>M +anager Acounts
And output:
John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Clean-up John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Clean-up John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Books John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Clean-up John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Books John Smith 25 May 2003 <job>Manager Acounts
