I should've mentioned: If you're having trouble with a loop like this, you might find it helpful to print the "interesting" variables (e.g. $offset) at the top of the loop. For example:

while (1) { my $idxSummary = index($string, "SUMMARY", $offset); my $result = ""; my $idxDescription = index ($string, "DESCRIPTION", $offset); my $result2= ""; print "idxSum:$idxSummary, idxDesc:$idxDescriptioni, offs:$offset\ +n";

Then I'd imagine you'd see something like:

idxSum:47, idxDesc: 62, offs:0 idxSum:122, idxDesc: 143, offs:73 idxSum:-1, idxDesc:-1, offs:10 idxSum:-1, idxDesc:-1, offs:10 .....

Then you'd probably figure it processed the first two records, and had a problem with the third. I didn't download your code, nor the ICAL url or anything, so the numbers are entirely fictitious.


When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.
