What about doing it this way.

Currently it skips any line containing the string "{T}". And if the following line consists of a single alphanumeric, that line is skipped as well.

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $flag_match; LINE: while ( my $line = <DATA> ) { if ( $line =~ m/{T}/ ) { $flag_match = 1; next LINE; } else { if ( $line =~ m/^\w$/ && $flag_match ) { $flag_match = 0; next LINE; } } print $line; } __DATA__ 020209990421VUTVS01 00082445B3^V^V^A2^C^D^V^V^A os00 0001 000101 R S 9 +912290449 00005941^B{T} R Saturday, January 1, 2000 G1 G ^C^D^V^V^A os00 0002 000101 R S 9912290451 00004113^B{T} R G8 Gardening< January garden calendar B C
