Ranges as Conditions

As well as representing sequences, ranges may also be used as conditional expressions. For example, the following code fragment prints sets of lines from standard input, where the first line in each set contains the word ``start'' and the last line the word ``end.''

while gets
  print if /start/../end/

Behind the scenes, the range keeps track of the state of each of the tests. We'll show some examples of this in the description of loops that starts on page 82.
