in reply to simple regex question

What is the nature of the pattern that you are looking for? is it numerical, alphabetical, alphanumerical, composed of special characters....etc ?

Show an example of what you are trying to accomplish... check perlrequick, perlretut->looking ahead and behind, perlreref can be a useful quick reference too

    Hello! I am trying to get values from an array which was pulled from a file in this format: FILE: test one two three four end And then I would like to assign everything (breakdown by \n)between the word test and end so array1 will be: one two three four open FILE, "testfile" or die "cannot open file! \n"; @array = <FILE> @array1 = @array=~ m/"match anything of word test, but before word end"; I will then need to match up all entries between array and array1 and display entries that match.

      posting same badly formatted question as answer again does not help at all, except to get a downvote :-(
