To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.

Save the replacement text in a file ( say repl_file ) and try,

Code:
perl -i.bak -0pe 's/rem.*?f is not null\n/qx(cat repl_file)/es' sql_file

Original file is saved in file.bak, just in case.

P.S.
The text is more readable if you place code tags around the samples/codes.

(1) Yes but how is this block different from the other 24 ? You will need this information in order to identify and replace this block correctly (out of the 25).

(2) Are all the blocks identical ? If so, which block do you want replaced ? The 1st, 2nd, 25th ? Or all ?

To give us a better idea, post a short excerpt of your target file that clearly demonstrates the difference(s) between the block of interest and the rest.
