in reply to Pattern Matching Confusion

Your code is trying to match a specific string, not a string of certain length. If you want any string between any two tags(the same tags) that is of specific length, then use a regex like this:

if ($record =~ /<(.+)>([^<>]{58})<\/\1>/g) {print "$2\n";}

An idea is not responsible for the people who believe in it...
