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

From the discussion I see that I misunderstood your initial posting. But I am as confused as kennethk is.

What I think so far:

  • you have a file with a lot of lines
  • you want to match several lines and join them into one
  • the lines you want to match build a consecutive range (e.g. lines 5-11)
  • the range of lines you want to match starts with a line containing the string "remotely"
  • the range of lines you want match ends with a line containing the string "p_agrs"

Based upon that, I guessed this code:

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; # open file and read from that handle... while ( <DATA> ) { chomp; print if m/remotely/ ... m/p_agrs/; print $/ if m/p_agrs/; } __DATA__ not me foo remotely bar01 bar02 bar03 p_agrs i am not here foo2 remotely barbar01 p_agrs i am out...

result:

foo remotelybar01bar02bar03p_agrs foo2 remotelybarbar01p_agrs
