Hi, eversuhoshin!

Section items are all capitalized, i.e., "ITEM," but your regex is matching both "ITEM" and "item." The following works to capture only the ITEM I: BUSINESS text from the data you provided:

use strict; use warnings; use File::Slurp qw/read_file/; my $text = read_file 'a5927574.txt'; my ($businessItemText) = $text =~ /(ITEM [\dA-Z]+?[: -]+BUSINESS.+?)ITEM [\dA-Z]+?[: -]+/s; print $businessItemText;

Output:

ITEM I: BUSINESS ---------------- Littlefield Corporation develops, owns and operates charitable bingo +halls, and owns and operates an event rental company. In our Entertainment div +ision, we operate 37 charitable bingo halls in Texas, Alabama, Florida and South + Carolina. ... are with Littlefield Hospitality and twelve (12) are at corporate he +adquarters in Austin, Texas. Littlefield Entertainment consists of sixteen (16) + full time employees and nineteen (19) part time employees. Littlefield H +ospitality consists of thirty-two (32) full time employees and one part time empl +oyee.

Hope this helps!
