Your while loop is handling blocks, not lines in each block. One fix is:

#!/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; local $/ = "END OF REPORT\n"; while (<DATA>) { my @lines = split /\n/; for (@lines) { print if /\*\sparameters after change\s\=/ .. /\*\sNRG locatio +n\s\=/; } } __DATA__ <13>Nov 13 17:27:25 OamCOMM[12260]: TIMESTAMP=Tue Nov 13 17:27:25 2018 MSGCLS=OAMOPE Title=OAM Create OPERATION Severity=Inform ...

or just:

#!/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; while (<DATA>) { print if /\*\sparameters after change\s\=/ .. /\*\sNRG location\s\ +=/; } __DATA__ <13>Nov 13 17:27:25 OamCOMM[12260]: TIMESTAMP=Tue Nov 13 17:27:25 2018 ...

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