in reply to how to read multiple line from a file

Does this work for you?

use warnings; use strict; use feature 'say'; my $str = do { local $/; <DATA>; }; say join " " => grep { $_ if /fox/ .. /over/ } split /\n/, $str; __DATA__ the quick brown fox jumped over the unfortunate dog
Output
fox jumped over

NOTE:
I used Athanasius data since the OP has none.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
