    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.
