You could use a counter, which is set to 1 when you reach START then reset to 0 when you reach END. As the counter will only be 1 between START and END, you can simply print out any lines where this is the case.
use strict; my $count = 0; open (IN, "input.txt"); while (<IN>) { if (/START/) { $count = 1; } elsif (/END/) { $count = 0; } elsif ($count) { print; } } close IN;
Output:
These are the first set of lines which are to be extracted These are the second set of lines which are to be extracted
I wasn't sure if the blank lines were intentional, but if you don't want them, change to
elsif ($count && $_ !~ /^$/)
