in reply to Is there a Limit on Matching .*

I believe the answer to your question is that that '.' is not matching over newlines. You must use the 's' modifier like so:

$chunk =~ m%<title>(.+)</title>.*<h1>(.+)</h1>%is;

Update: Removed first paragraph may have been wrong.

$PM = "Perl Monk's";
$MCF = "Most Clueless Friar Abbot Bishop Pontiff";
$nysus = $PM . $MCF;
