Sorry, my reply is quite late as well.

The /m is apparently indispensable in this regex setup, so I also tried /ma and /maa combinations.

Yes, that's what I meant, sorry - often people will say e.g. "the /m and /s modifiers" to distinguish modifiers visually from m// and s/// or other things, but that doesn't mean to say those are the only modifiers that should be applied to the regex.

I've followed your advice, opened the file in raw mode. Before, I was using the module use Path::Tiny; and then path('<file.pdf>')->slurp_raw; to open the file in raw mode. I guess that's the same behaviour? Anyway, I followed your advice and came up with the following test program

Yes, it's the same behavior. You didn't show that in your original node, and for this node you've shown what looks to be a complete script, but you're not showing your input (in a format compatible with text-only display, such as hexdump -C input.pdf or od -tx1c input.pdf) or your expected output, leaving us to guess what the issue is. This is why Short, Self-Contained, Correct Examples are so important, so that we can reproduce the issue. Please show: Short, representative sample input, a runnable piece of code, the expected output for the input, and the actual output, including any error messages.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
