in reply to parsing a line

You are having trouble because : is not a 'word character' -- see Using character classes in perlretut. Easiest solution would be to remove the s modifier (Modifiers) and use .+, which will match every character except a newline (once you remove s).

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.
