, I missed the multi-line part...added a s to my regexp
This actually ran? I would think the parser would have halted when it got to the </script> part...it should have ended the regex.
You probably want to try something like this:
my $test = "before script<script> stuff and more stuff \n stuff\nstuff
+\nstuff</script> after script";
$test =~ s%<script>(.*?)</script>%%gs;
print "Test is $test\n";
Test is before script after script
This uses a nifty trick, you can use (just about) anything for the start/end characters for a regexp/search-replace to avoid conflicts in the matching/replacing string. Here I have used the percent signs instead.
