I don't know renderman, so i am not sure how complex this is going to grow to, but i think the following will do something similar to what you are asking about : lightly-tested code ahead

#!/usr/bin/perl my $string; { $/ = undef; $string = <DATA>; } while ($string =~ m!\[\s*([^]]+)\]!g) { my @nums = split(/\s+/,$1); print "Array : ",join(',',@nums),"\n"; } __DATA__ [1 1 1 1 1 1 ][4 4 4 4 4 4] [ 123 123 123 123 123 123 123 123 123 ] "P" [ -1 1 1 1 1 -1 1 1 1 ]

If renderman has a very complex file format, you may want to write a more robust parser.

from the frivolous to the serious
