Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

salve monks,

I have the text of a play which I was to put into a presentation. So I need to split it up every 15 lines or so.

I had already stated to do this in vim by recording a macro where I would insert some special text say xx (which I can then parse upon) after I'd moved down around 15 lines.

Can this be done in perl (more automatically I guess)? Also does it complicate things to not want to introduce the parsing marker when the 15 line account occurs in the middle of a paragraph?

Sorry for not having a good grasp of the parsing lingo here, but hopefully you get what I want to do.
