if you're trying to match that entire string you could try this
this matches from the first tag to the last tag
I hope I understood what you we're trying to do

$content = "<head><body blah></body><foo></foo></head>"; $content =~ m[^(<(.+?)>.*?</\2>)$]; print $1."\n";
if you just wanted to match and print out the individual tags you could do this
$content = "<head><body blah></body><foo></foo></head>"; while ($content =~ m[(<.+?>)]g) { print $1."\n"; }
a great tutorial on perlmonks covering how a regex will match
hope this helps
