(OP)
My question is, is there a good resource that explains nesting statements.

As an example.

To change
primary
Factory CTS 1.9.0(46) P1
*Slot 1 CTS 1.10.2(42) P1


To
primary *Slot 1 CTS 1.10.2(42) P1

CODE --> Perl

while(<$in>){
    print $out $_ if /^primary$/ .. /\*Slot /;
} 



The code above only gives me whats shown in blue. I want to perform a few more functions in order to arrive at the result shown in red.

Again, Im looking to learn how to nest commands. Of course in this case probably s/// and tr.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Perl : Perl equivalent to the ksh | and ;

$_ is carrying a newline character at the very least. Perhaps removing it will get you closer?

CODE

while(<$in>){
    chomp($_);
    print $out $_ if /^primary$/ .. /\*Slot /;
}
