I said that feeling the need to turn this into a Perl Monks vs Stack Overflow comparison is misguided, and that bragging about Perl Monks on Stack Overflow would help exactly no one. Neither of these points suggests that you are feeble-minded.

(However, reading that into what I said does not help your case on said account.)

    I have too much respect for you Aristotle to keep this up. Looking back on it, I should have just upvoted the original node, and kept my mouth shut. Time is the only valid judge of a site's worth..... perlmonks has passed that test, and in a few years we can look back and see how StackOverflow is faring.

[Your Mother]: Stick with what you know. Or post a SOPW and if it's not complicated I guarantee someone will answer; me if it's straightforward and no one else gets it better first.

[Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "$file:$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } $_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
[Lady_Aleena]: my scratchpad has what I have so far.
[choroba]: what do you mean by multiline?
[Discipulus]: thanks 1nickt!
[choroba]: grep is a filter, it selects elements from a list based on a boolean condition
[moritz]: you need to read the file in one go to do a multiline regex match
[erix]: ha ha, I like the Vigilante
[Lady_Aleena]: Forget it. I'm getting angry with it.
