It looks like you have a string containg some words (or numbers) between "foo" and "bar". The words themselves are separated with spaces, so

foo a b cd efg bar
is what you want to search for, I assume.

The regular expression you mention expects "foo" and "bar" to occur more than once, so it might not be the regexp you are looking for. You could use two steps: first, find everything between "foo" and "bar", then split that into separate words or numbers. The code would then be:

my @matches; if ($data =~ m/foo (.*) bar/) { # everything between foo and bar go +es into $1 @matches = split(' ', $1); # split on whitespace }

I cannot think of a regexp that does it in one go, so I welcome smarter solutions.

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