in thread Matching string, then getting next line

Maybe a better option would be to try and split out everything between the message dump: and message dump: Is there a way to say something like
if($_ =~ /Message Dump:(.*) Message Dump:/)
And then the whole string would be in something like $1

    You can try to change the line separator $/ to "Message Dump:", then each line would end with "Message Dump:". However the conversion from DOS to Unix line ends is more standard and reusable...
    my @messages; my $inmessage = 0; # 0 false, 1 true while ( <FILE> ) { s/\r\n$/\n/ ; if ( $inmessage) { push $_, @messages; } if ( m/Message Dump:.*/ ) { # we set $inmessage to 1 if 0, or 0 if 1 $inmessage = abs( $inmessage -1 ) ; }
      Not sure this is going to work, as it will never find the message i am looking for, should i not be using something like the (.*) so store the contents between Message Dump: and Message Dump:
        Well if you know what's you're looking for, probably matching it directly would be easier then.
        my $message; while (<FILE>) { if ( m/\d\d \d\d\/\d\d\/\d\d \d\d:\d\d:\d\d:\d\d\d .*/ ) { $message .= $_ } }
