( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The others already gave regexes. But how about this split approach:
while (my $line = <SESAME>){ my ($tempa, $value, $tempb)= split m#</?CS_REFCLT>#, $line, 3; }

Update: Thanks to jdporter for telling me about my mistake, using 2 instead of 3 above. Fixed...

Of course this will also find other constructs like </CS_REFCLT>dfasdf</CS_REFCLT>.

But maybe, if the data is XML, a real XML parser like XML::Twig is something that would help you best here...
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use XML::Twig; my $twig= new XML::Twig( twig_handlers => { CS_REFCLT => \&cs_refclt, }, ); my @numbers; $twig->parsefile( 'filename' ); # here you will have all numbers in @numbers. sub cs_refclt { my ($t, $elt)= @_; push @numbers, $elt->text(); }

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.
