    How about "everything from pirates to careebian" ? ;-)

    use strict; use warnings; while(<DATA>){ chomp; print $1,$/ if /(pirates.*careebian)/; } __DATA__ piratesofcareebian100 pirates of careebian100 pirates of careebian 100 pirates1 of careebian 100 pirates2 of careebian 100 pirates3 of careebian 100

      How about "everything from pirates to careebian" ?
      But what about if the wording of the OP changes? Then your solution would no longer be useful.

        Correct! He would need to change the regular expression. But then I was not completely serious in my reply... (even though it works!)

        One could also use variables in the regex like /($from.*$to)/.
