[Lady_Aleena]: The reason I would like to use pcregrep is because it can do multiline searches supposedly.
[perldigious]: What are your criteria for looking Tanktalus? What things must a job have for you to consider it? And where are you in your career? Start, middle, or end?
[erix]: are there any regex-engines that do not do multiline?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, grep doesn't.
[Lady_Aleena]: Linux grep that is...
[Lady_Aleena]: $ grep --include=*.p[lm] -Ern 'get_(array|hash| data)' does not do multiline search.
[Discipulus]: focus on Perl LA; you can already search multiline patterns
[erix]: grep is a program, not a regex-engine
[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm 20 years in, and I don't want to move ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
