in reply to extract all the text between two words

Your anchors (^) are messed up, they mean the beginning of the string when on the left-most position. Also, you need to do the actual splitting, after you do the extraction.

# If you just want the stuff in between $transcript =~ /CORPORATE PARTICIPANTS(.*)CONFERENCE CALL PARTICIPANTS +/i; $1; # $transcript =~ /CORPORATE PARTICIPANTS foo bar baz CONFERENCE CALL P +ARTICIPANTS/i; # If you want foo, bar, baz my @words = split /\W/, $1; say for @words;
