It looks like you need something a bit like this.

  #!/usr/bin/perl

  use strict;
  use warnings;

  while (<>) {
    if (m|\[XYZ]| .. m|\[/XYZ]|) {
      next if m|\[/?XYZ]|;
      print;
    }
  }

But I can't be sure as you haven't actually explained what you question is.

For Perl questions, you might be better advised to try Stack Overflow
or your local Perl Mongers group.
