( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I agree that use of an XML parser is likely to be a better idea, but just an example of what your fellow monks were hoping for as an example of what you tried and what resulted (except this works):

>perl -wMstrict -le "my $s = qq{xxx </div>\n</body> xxx}; print qq{[[$s]]}; ;; my $tags = qr{ </div> \n </body> }xms; $s =~ s{ $tags }{gone}xms; print qq{[[$s]]}; " [[xxx </div> </body> xxx]] [[xxx gone xxx]]

Question: Are you sure it's only a single newline that's present? The presence of other whitespace characters than just a newline can confuse the issue. The following might be a better regex:
    qr{ </div> \s* </body> }xms

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
