    fails when the split word, monks, is repeated:
    __DATA__ perl monks wisdom monks perl wisdom perl perl monks monks wisdom perl perl monks monks monkly wisdom
      Nice observation!
      However, for repeating "monks" all we need is this:
      while($line=<DATA>) { while($line=~m/monks/g) { print "\n==>$`\nmonks\n$'"; } }
      Now I've assumed prefix of "monks" means whatever precedes "monks" in the string (even if it contains previous "monks") Same goes for postfix.
