Danke nach Frankfurt!

There are a few bugs in your code, though. I changed the if to a while loop and fixed a few other problems:

while ($str =~ /searchword/g) { my $loc = tell($fh) - length($str) + pos($str); print "Found a match starting after $loc.\n"; }

Update: That doesn't quite work either... it finds too many occurrences...
