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

If you are going to read the whole file into memory you also allow for the following solution which seems more simple and direct than working with splice.

use strict; use warnings; my $file_content = do { local $/ = undef; <DATA>; }; $file_content =~ s/ (?:.*\n)? ^X{5}.*\n (?:.*\n)?//xmg; print $file_content; __DATA__ XXXXX Aoooo XXXXX is my name Boooo 11111 22222 33333 Coooo XXXXX is what I play Doooo 44444

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
