in thread How to extract certain range of text and write into another file?

For example, I need to extract the $ NAME: sandy until $$.TO and then join with the contents inside $NAME: patrick which is start from G1 until $$SRU.
Your sample data seems to indicate that the data for each name starts with "$ NAME" and ends with a line ".EON", which is the base of our suggestions until now. The quoted sentence seems to indicate something different. So you should clarify:
  • how do you recognize which line belongs to which name (via $ NAME and .EON, or different)?
  • how do you determine which part of those lines for a particular name you are interested in?
  • [Update: additional question] do you need to preserve the order of these entries/lines?

[vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/
[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/'s sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
[moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
[vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
[vrk]: Clear as mud!
