in reply to multiple OR match fails

Would have been nice to include at least some piece of your input file. Your regex looks like it is missing some parentheses or something. Also, if your code is so short you might consider one-lining it:

~linux> perl -ne 'if(m/((FINDINGS|COMPLICATIONS):(.*?)([A-Z]+))/sgm){p +rint qq|$2$3\t$4\n|};' foo7.txt
