( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Because the 'while' loop goes off first, populating $_ with one line of DATA. Your range operator then applies to that, which is why it doesn't work.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my %rec; while ( my $line = <DATA>) { $line .= <DATA>; $line =~ s/\"//g; $line =~s/,//g; my ( $id, $name ) = ( $line =~ m/id: (\S+)\nname: (\S+)/mg ); print "$id = $name\n"; $rec{$id} = $name; } __DATA__ "id": "xx-ada-qwebasd", "name": "telphone", "id": "fasda-asd-123123-fkja123a", "name": "car", "id": "97f921-a312-fas2", "name": "ball",

That I think does the trick. (Basically, grabs two lines in a go, but isn't ideal if your data structure is more complicated). I suspect there's something more clever you could do to parse a file and grab out pattern matching, but I think most of those would involve reading the file in a scalar context and reading the whole lot (which may be fine, but can go wrong with large files).
