Hello perltux, and welcome to the Monastery!
How do I get the second pattern match to assign all matches as multiple elements to the array?
I think you need to capture the multiple matches first, then separate them using a loop:
my @chunks = $sysex_dump =~ /\xF0C.[~z]((?:..LM 0087[A-Z][A-Z].+?)+)\
push @parts, $1 while /(..LM 0087[A-Z][A-Z].+?)/gs;
This code is untested (you provided no sample data), but it should give you a workable approach. Note that in the first regex, the second + quantifier needs to be within the capturing parentheses, so I have added non-capturing parentheses (?:) to define this quantifier’s scope.
Update: I see you have added a “self contained code example” to your original post. From this, it appears that the data to be matched contains literal . characters (periods, full stops.) But your regex matches these with:
# ^^ <= here they are
which matches any two characters. To match periods only, backslash them in the regex:
Hope that helps,
