in reply to regex expression help

I am not quite sure from your question whether you are having a problem with the match itself, or simply are asking about printing what precedes the match.

As for the match I tried your code and sample data and it works, ( once you add a semi-colon after Found it\n").

You can print the contents of $` to get what precedes your match.

Check out perldoc perlvar for info on $` and other variables you can use with a regex and more.
