in thread Matching string, then getting next line

I guess that you are trying this with a file that has been generated on Windows and then transferred to a UNIX box. You end up with extra ^M chars when you look at the file using vi. Try trimming the surplus whitespace using a regex
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; while (<MYFILE>){ s/\s+$//; if (/NEXT LINE MARKER/) { my $nextLine = <MYFILE>; $nextLine =~ s/\s+$//; print "$nextLine\n"; # do stuff with the next line here. } }

    That does work, but it splits out the lines that i am looking for so when i run it i end up with.
    #!/usr/bin/perl open(MYFILE, "log.log"); while (<MYFILE>){ s/\s+$//; if (/Message\sdump:/) { my $nextLine = <MYFILE>; $nextLine =~ s/\s+$//; print "Found=$nextLine\n"; # do stuff with the next line here. } }

      Actually you'd better remove only the ending "CR" characters, not spaces :
      while (<MYFILE>) { s/\r\n$/\n/g; ... }
      This simply replace "<CR><LF>" (DOS end of lines) with "<LF>" (Unix end of line)
        Maybe a better option would be to try and split out everything between the message dump: and message dump: Is there a way to say something like
        if($_ =~ /Message Dump:(.*) Message Dump:/)
        And then the whole string would be in something like $1
