This script will do what you want, provided that your file is not too big for your memory.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $start_flag = '<REANALYZED>'; my $stop_flag = '</REANALYZED>'; my $replacement = <<'REPL'; "z:\path\newfilename1.ext" GL "z:\path\newfilename2.ext" GL "z:\path\newfilename3.ext" GL "z:\path\newfilename4.ext" GL "z:\path\newfilename5.ext" GL "z:\path\newfilename6.ext" GL REPL open ORIGINAL, "< original.txt" or die "can't open original file\n"; my $original; { local $/; $original = <ORIGINAL>; } close ORIGINAL; $original =~ s/ $start_flag .*? (\s*) $stop_flag \n /$start_flag\n$replacement$1$stop_flag/gsx; open COPY, "> copy.txt" or die "can't write to copy\n"; print COPY $original; close COPY;

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

  • 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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
