Need to extract text repetitively between two patterns

Hi All,

I want to extract the text between some pattern which occurs repeatedly in a file. For example my input is like,
Code:
   [javac] [checking .....
   [javac] [checking .....
   [javac] [checking .....
   [javac] [checking .....
   [javac] /home/.....
             ..........java:25: cannot find symbol
    [javac] 
    [javac]............
    [javac] /home/......
    [javac] [loading java/lang/Math.class(java/lang:Math.class)]
    [javac] /home/.......
    [javac] [checking.......
    [javac] [checking.......
    [javac] [checking.......

I want to display text between "[javac] /home" upto "[javac] [" including these lines.

My output should look like..
Code:
    [javac] /home/.....
             ..........java:25: cannot find symbol
    [javac] 
    [javac]............
    [javac] /home/......
    [javac] [loading ...
    [javac] /home/.......
    [javac] [checking.......

Please help me to do that in shell script.
