    That works for me, but is there a way you can split it without the newlines being removed? Thanks.

      For my above code spliced the 20 lines and stored in a array format. Now that's changed to add a newline character in every 20th line and stored in a scalar variable.

      $new_string.="$&\n" while ($string=~ m/([^\n]+.*?\n){1,20}/gs); print "\n$new_string";
      With this, you could easily process whatever you want to process in the string.
