It appears that your solution only allows for a single-character STX or ETX token, due to the check for character classes (eg [$STX]). I am presently experiencing too much of a coffee deficiency to offer an alternative.

Update: ... and to not recognize that STX and ETX are possibly symbols for one character tokens :-)

    I interpreted single-character STX and ETX codes as being intrinsic to the problem. Maybe that is not so, however. Here is a multi-character solution:
    use Modern::Perl; my $STX = 'foo'; my $ETX = 'bar'; my $re = qr{ $STX (?: (?<match>.*?) $ETX | (?:(?<match>.{80}))) }x; $_='foo12345678barfoo1234567890123456789012345678901234567'. '890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890bar'; say substr($+{match},0,80) while (/$re/g);

    (I added a substr() to limit the matched string to 80 characters. It appears to me that it's not trivial to meet these requirements entirely within the regex...though I'm sure others will quickly prove me wrong!)
