split removes the separator from the resulting tokens:

my $str = "1\n2\n3\n4"; my @tokens = split( /\n/, $str ); # now tokens contain # ( "1", "2", "3", "4" ), NOT ( "1\n", "2\n", "3\n", "4\n" )

And no, $\ is not the output record separator, the output record separator is $,

   Update Above was not true, $\ is output record separator.
   $, was output field separator

But then again, with your code I don't understand the reasoning to use split. you could just

my $para = ..... # whatever. # so $para is ( possibly ) a multi-line parameter my $first_line_break = index( $para, "\n" ); if( $first_line_break > 0 ) { $lastHeading = substr( $para, 0, $first_line_break ); next; } if( $para =~ /mSOriginating/ && $para =~ /$msisdn/ ) { print $para; }

This would do, no?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
