Hi,

I was wondering if any one can help me. Is there any command in perl that will let me match a line only if the next line
fufills a certain condition, without doing a double loop over the file? 
My data is like this 

Variable1 number number number
Variable1 number number number   --- want this line
Variable2 number number number   --- and this 
Variable2 number number number

Does any one have any ideas ? 
Thanks very much 

Iain
