Need a stopping condition...

module m1;


module m2;


so like
while<fp_ptr> {

if (/module\s*(\w)\)?.*/) {
my moduleName = $1;
parse till encounter endmodule... Then start from the beginning.
This condition I want.


The file can contain... n module definition.

This smells like a course assignment.

There's nothing hard here.. it's pretty basic parsing.

I doubt anyone here is going to do your homework for you. If you provided code you tried to write that didn't work, we MIGHT help you out if you explain it well and aren't just dumping a bunch of junk.

Otherwise, sorry, but no.

I think I have confused everybody...

Here in short what I want to do...

I want to extract pattern from the file which can come multiple times...

pattern_1 any_thingh

pattern_2:anything /*I want to extract
anything pattern_2 to pattern_3 and store that
anything in a string
pattern_3 */


patten2 - pattern3 can come multiple time inside patten1- pattern2..

The only confusion is you thinking that people are going to write programs for you for free.

Perl's (link) "range" operator might help you..

Try the free sample chapter of the book Pro Perl Parsing. It will teach you what you need to know.

An atheist is just somebody who feels about Yahweh the way any decent Christian feels about Thor or Baal or the golden calf. As has been said before, we are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. (Richard Dawkins)
