There's more than one way to do things

The following program reads in a file, and if it finds a line that starts with GRANT, followed by a line containing whatever, followed by two lines containing just a '/', it will remove the slashes from the latter two lines. This is how I interpret what you want; however, your specification isn't very exact.
use strict; use warnings; my @buffer; for (1 .. 4) { push @buffer => scalar <>; last unless defined $buffer [-1]; } while (defined $buffer [-1]) { if ($buffer [0] =~ /^GRANT/ && $buffer [2] eq "/\n" && $buffer [3] eq "/\n") { $buffer [2] = $buffer [3] = "\n"; } print shift @buffer; push @buffer => scalar <>; } pop @buffer; print @buffer; __END__

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
