The solution is to store the last 5 lines visited in an array, and also have a variable tracking how many more lines beyond the current one have to be output:
$x = 5; # Number of lines to print above and below. open (LOG, "GWSvc.log") || die "Unable to get a handle to the file: $! +\n"; $after = 0; while (<LOG>) { if ($after) { print $_; $after--; } else { push (@lines, $_); if ($#lines > $x) { shift(@lines); } } if (/c9391b56-b174-441b-921c-7d63/) { print $line while ($line = shift(@lines)); $after = $x; } }

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