in reply to upto match please, my one-lina!!

So it can run also under use strict:

perl -Mstrict \ -ne'/regex(?{print @@; exit})/;' \ -e'shift(@@) if push(@@,$_)>5' file

    Loved the clever use of the return value from push, ioannis (++). The 'experimental' regex feature, however, got me thinking if it could be done with regular features only, so - here is the slightly ugly, but short:
    perl -ne "m/foo/ and die @@ ; shift(@@) if push(@@,$_)>5" myfile.txt
    I used "die" because (without eval), the "print @@, exit" combo printed nothing in my code (but it works as advertised in ioannis' code). Perhaps a more enlightened monk could explain why.

    Update: This works too:

    perl -Mstrict -ne "m/addr/ and eval {print @@; exit}; shift(@@) if pus +h(@@,$_)>5" myfile.txt
    This code works on Win32. Use single-quotes for *nix.
