Hi James, thank you for your quick help. I've tried your solution and it works. I'm new to perl, so in this first attempt I have only used a tiny bit of the real data. So I have modified your solution a little bit to be able to work with an inputfile and an outputfile.
The modified code is
# Aufruf: perl removeEK1.pl TestEK.txt > Out.txt
use strict;
use warnings;
my $regex = '\{\[%tqu.*]}';
my $subst = '';
while(<>)
{
my $line =$_;
$line =~ s/$regex/$subst/gi;
print $line;
}
That worked fine with the following file TestEK.txt:

I got the output I wanted, but when I tested it with a part of my real inputfile, it failed.

My outputfile now was the same as the inputfile, the searchtext was not removed!! While in my first attempt I made relatively simple errors,
now I think it's difficult and I'm not able to spot what is going wrong. Pherhaps you have an idea?
