Hi tej,

As marto said it is always good to use parsers to have neat solution. Anyhow you have not given your exact output, so below code may satisfy your requirement.

$str = '<Tr><Tc>PA Group (N <26> 23)<Tc>COM Group (N <26> 24)<Tc> <Tr>Gender<Tc><Tc><Tc><124><sup>2<reset> test <26> 0.216, <mdit>df<med +> <26> 1, <mdit>P<med> <26> 0.642 <Tr><ems>Male (%)<Tc>14<ths>(60.9)<Tc>13<ths>(54.2)<Tc> <Tr><ems>Female (%)<Tc>9<ths>(39.1)<Tc>11<ths>(45.8)<Tc> <Tr>Ethnicity<Tc><Tc><Tc><124><sup>2<reset> test <26> 24.99, <mdit>df< +med> <26> 4, <mdit>P<med> <178> 0.001 <Tr><ems>African American (%)<Tc>5<ths>(21.7)<Tc>2<ths>(8.3)<Tc> <Tr><ems>European American (%)<Tc>5<ths>(21.7)<Tc>17<ths>(70.8)<Tc> <Tr><ems>Asian American (%)<Tc>0<Tc>4<ths>(16.7)<Tc> <Tr><ems>Hispanic American (%)<Tc>0<Tc>1<ths>(4.2)<Tc> <Tr><ems>Other (%)<Tc>9<ths>(39.1)<Tc>0<Tc> <Tr>Age, yr (SD)<Tc>46.05<ths>(6.13)<Tc>30.35<ths>(10.85)<Tc><mdit>t<m +ed> <26> 5.94, <mdit>P<med> <178> 0.001 <Tr>Education, yr (SD)<Tc>11.37<ths>(2.31)<Tc>15.85<ths>(1.75)<Tc><mdi +t>t<med> <26> 7.41, <mdit>P<med> <178> 0.001 <Tr>Pain Threshold, <28>C (SD)<Tc>48.75<ths>(2.44)<Tc>47.33<ths>(3.24) +<Tc>U* <26> 158.0, <mdit>P<med> <26> 0.012 <Tr;;4><ems>Males (SD) <26> 47.77 (3.35)&dagger; <Tr;;4><ems>Females (SD) <26> 48.26 (2.36)&dagger; <Tr;;4><ems>U&Dagger; <26> 244, <mdit>P<med> <26> 0.582<endtab>'; $str = qr{$str}; while ($str =~ m|((<Tr(?:\;)*(?:\d)*>)([^\n]*)<Tc>)|g){ push (@cells, $1) } print @cells;

[stevieb]: did my pull request challenge today, Locale::gettext. Weird layout for a dist, and I have no idea how to use it, but it's always nice when you can force someone else's work be use strict; and use warnings; compliant :)
[stevieb]: ahem... s/no idea how to use it/didn't read enough as to what it's used for/
[stevieb]: interestingly enough, someone else got my Devel::Examine:: Subs distribution for their PRC, and I applaud the change. This dist is extremely complicated and mostly obfu, but the person doing it understood PPI enough to change...
[stevieb]: ...something I had overlooked in the extreme depths of the core functionality. After merging, then a couple of extra tweaks, I still have 100% test coverage. Yay for people who write tests!
