Greetings again. I have tried I don't know how many different things to get this block extracted from this log file. Here is a sample of the log showing 2 records:

There are MANY entries in the log, all formatted like above - more or less data between "parameters after change" and before "NRG location", sometimes other blocks of data that are irrelevant to what I'm trying to accomplish here. So far, I have tried using the flip-flop operator in various combinations, regex in various combinations... I don't know what else to try. This file is read in a while loop. My goal is to basically extract the block of lines between "parameters after change" and "NRG location". My current test code looks like this:
#!/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $file = "t.txt"; local $/ = "END OF REPORT\n"; open IN, "<", $file or die "IN: $!\n"; while (<IN>) { print if /\*\sparameters after change\s\=/ .. /\*\sNRG locatio +n\s\=/; }
This really shouldn't be this hard, which tells me I must be missing something simple. Any thoughts?

  • 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 editor intervention).
