in reply to How to deal with long line

Here's one way that reads in the string a little bit at a time, which is good if your data is very large. Mostly untested, but works for your data:

use warnings; use strict; my @wanted_substrings; { local $/ = 'END'; while(my $string = <DATA>) { push @wanted_substrings, ($string =~ /START(.*)END/); } } print "@wanted_substrings"; __DATA__ somecharSTARTfvENDsomecharSTARTsvENDsomecharSTARTtvENDsomechar

[Corion]: Whee! Germanys Grand Central Airport (for Berlin, re-scheduled for the thrid or fourth time, to open now in 2018) has just fired their technical lead
[ambrus]: Corion: Is their budget estimate four times the initial estimate yet? Was the construction late by six months already three months after they started?
[marto]: I'll believe it when I see it. That's been due for many years now :P
[marto]: oddly the last time I was there I saw a zeppelin in flight for the first time
[Corion]: ambrus: I don't know how far the budget estimate has been overrun yet
[Corion]: marto: Heh ;) No, you were likely at Tegel or Schönefeld, the new one ("BER") will be somewhat outside of Berlin ;)
[marto]: Corion Schoenfeld, but my friend has been telling me about this new airport for about 7-8 years now :P
[marto]: I doubt it even exists as a building site :P
