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

    With this, you could easily process whatever you want to process in the string.

    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";
