in reply to Storing Lines before and After pattern

Because of $` and $' overhead, this is an ideal place for split:
open ($fh, "<poem") or die "Couldn't Open!"; $poem = do{ local $/; <$fh> }; ($before, $match, $after} = split /(DOG)/, $poem;



Code is (almost) always untested.

    If there may be multiple occurrences of DOG, you want:
    ($before, $match, $after) = split /(DOG)/, $poem, 2;
    or $after will only include up to the second DOG.
