The second problem is that your print statement only belongs to the second rule, i.e. if Pre is matched, nothing is done at all.

Wow, there is something I am not getting here. I would expect %item to have what matches in the rule, so if the rule is "Pre | Post", %item would have either the "Pre" or the "Post" matching part.

Obviously I am getting all this wrong

    You are right, %item has either the Pre or Post matching part. But only in one case does it print anything!

    Entry : Pre | Post { use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \%item;} # is equivalent to Entry : Pre Entry : Post { use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \%item; } # is equivalent to Entry : Post { use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \%item; } Entry : Pre # is NOT equivalent to Entry : Pre { use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \%item; } Entry : Post { use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \%item; }

    And the last example is what you want
