in reply to How to extract text present in 3 lines within the HTML tags

Come on, just use a real full HTML parser.

use warnings; use XML::Twig; our $doc = q( <title> This is a very good site for regular Expressions. Very helpful. Thanks. </title> <p> Some other text we don't want to extract. ); my $twig = XML::Twig->new; $twig->parse_html($doc); my($title_elt) = $twig->findnodes("//title"); my $title = $title_elt->trimmed_text; print "$title\n" __END__
