The $4 seems not to be necessary,

Indeed, as long as you use

(?:\w+\W+){0,$distance}

instead of the expression I've used,

(\w+\W+){0,$distance}

there will be no extra match. I haven't done any benchmarking, but probably the lookahead is a bit better/faster anyway.

[Your Mother]: Stick with what you know. Or post a SOPW and if it's not complicated I guarantee someone will answer; me if it's straightforward and no one else gets it better first.

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
[Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
[choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
[Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
[choroba]: grep is a filter, it selects elements from a list based on a boolean condition
[moritz]: you need to read the file in one go to do a multiline regex match
[erix]: ha ha, I like the Vigilante
[Lady_Aleena]: Forget it. I'm getting angry with it.
