You were very close to solving the problem. You just need to repeat the search multiple times, as perl will continue the search when the last one ended.
use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $data; # Modifying $/ in a limited context to avoid # affecting other areas of the code. { local $/; $data = <DATA>; } # # Create the regular expression using qr{}x as it makes # the pattern much easier to follow (and maintain) # my $pattern = qr{ (\d+-) (\d+-) (\d+) (\s*/\s*) (\d+) (\s*/\s*) (\d+) }x; my @list; while ($data =~ /$pattern/g) { push @list,[$1,$2,$3,$4,$5,$6,$7]; } print Dumper \@list; __DATA__ PART NAME QUANTITY SECTION/FIGURE/ITEM Widget1 1 72-33-00/ 23/ 85 Widget1 1 75-20-00/ 11/ 10 Widget2 1 72-33-00/20/10 Widget2 1 72-33-00/20/70 Widget2 1 72-00-33/2/1 Widget2 1 72-00-33/2/20 Widget2 1 73-12-00/4/1 Widget2 1 73-12-00/4/220 Widget2 1 73-12-00/3/10 Widget2 2 79-20-00/9/1 Widget2 1 79-20-00/5/1
Note that I defined the regex before the loop. This makes the logic easier to follow, particularly when you use the 'x' modifier.

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.
