in reply to Insert lines into specific stanza line

It took me three or four minutes to figure out what your for loop does, and I still have no idea what it has to do with the stated problem. I think I would try a different approach altogether...

open INPUT, '<', 'inputfile'; open OUTPUT, '>', 'resultsfile'; local $/ = "</stanza>"; while (<INPUT>) { my $stanza = $_; if ($stanza =~ /<stanza/) { my ($dottedquad) = $stanza =~ /<stanza\s*(\d+[.]\d+[.]\d+[.]\d+)\s*>/; $stanza .= " sl3 yet another line\n"; # Make other changes to $stanza here as desired. print OUTPUT $stanza . $/; }}

    Unfortunately, your code is incorrect, and will produce the following output:

    <stanza 12.34.56.78> sl1 this is my line sl2 justanotherline </stanza> sl3 yet another line </stanza>

    Also, there's no newline at the last line of the above, so any subsequent additions will not be correctly formatted.
