in reply to Separating substrings from a main string

Were you looking for something like the following?

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $string = "> abcd1234 abcd abcd >xyz123 xyz"; my @substrings = $string =~ /(>.+)/g; print Dumper \@substrings;

Output

$VAR1 = [ '> abcd1234', '>xyz123 ' ];

In your original posting, you say you ...want the parts from > to the first \n after the > in one string, and \n to the next > in another string. Yet that would yield:

$VAR2 = [ '> abcd1234', 'abcd abcd' ];

However, in a reply you say, ...the correct output should be >abcd1234 >xyz123..., and, assuming these are two different strings, this is the output from the above script.
