You could use a counter, which is set to 1 when you reach START then reset to 0 when you reach END. As the counter will only be 1 between START and END, you can simply print out any lines where this is the case.
use strict; my $count = 0; open (IN, "input.txt"); while (<IN>) { if (/START/) { $count = 1; } elsif (/END/) { $count = 0; } elsif ($count) { print; } } close IN;
These are the first set of lines which are to be extracted These are the second set of lines which are to be extracted
I wasn't sure if the blank lines were intentional, but if you don't want them, change to
elsif ($count && $_ !~ /^$/)

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.
