I have another question regarding pattern matching.
I have a piece of html that I need to search through. The html looks like this:
What I need to do is find the three revisions between <!-- Start_of_revision--> and <!-- End_of_revision-->.
I am using the following bit of code to do this, but I am only printing "revision1" and not the second two:
my $file = $foo_bar_file;
open (FILE,"<$file") || die $!;
read FILE, my $text, -s $file;
if($text =~ /<!--Start_of_revision-->(.*?)<!-- End_of_revision-->/
I am slurping in the whole file, I am using .*? (i.e. non greedy), and I'm using the s and g modifiers. I thought that this would be enough to find all three occurrences of anything between <!-- Start_of_revision--> and <!-- End_of_revision-->, so what am I doing wrong??
Thanks in advance,

Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

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
