A more generalized way to handle such requirements is with a Finite-State Machine (FSM) approach.   The algorithms consider, not only the current line of input, but the $state that the FSM is “in” at the time, where the current value of $state is determined by recent history of lines seen.   It is probably overkill for a requirement as trivial as this one seems to be,.
