( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

While the following code works, it offends me because the regex on the line marked with #!!!!! captures only a single line and I'd prefer to capture everything up to the next Smart Comment. Where's my "misteak?"

#!/usr/bin/perl use Data::Dumper; use strict; use warnings; use v5.10; local $/; my $code_s=<DATA>; while ($code_s !~ m{\G$}cg) { if ($code_s =~ m{\G^(\s*###+.*\n)}cgm) { # $1 is a Smart Comment upto and including the \n warn Data::Dumper->Dump([\$1],[qw(*1)]).' '; # Since the \n was captured we don't need to bump pos($cod +e_s) #pos($code_s)++; } elsif ($code_s =~ m{\G((?:.*$)*)(?!\s*###+)}cgm) { #!!!!! # $1 only captures a single line # why not multiple lines complete with their \n? warn Data::Dumper->Dump([\$1],[qw(*1)]).' '; pos($code_s)++; } else { my $pos=pos($code_s); my $residue=substr($code_s,$pos); die 'WTF:\n'.Data::Dumper->Dump([\$pos,\$residue],[qw(*pos + *residue)]); }; }; exit; __END__ no ### yes # ### no no no #### yes


$1 = \'no'; at line 20, <DATA> chunk 1. $1 = \' ### yes '; at line 14, <DATA> chunk 1. $1 = \' # ### no'; at line 20, <DATA> chunk 1. $1 = \'no '; at line 20, <DATA> chunk 1. $1 = \'no '; at line 20, <DATA> chunk 1. $1 = \' #### yes '; at line 14, <DATA> chunk 1.

Note I corrected \s###+ to \s*###+
