[Pdx-pm] file processing - from to delimiters

I have this memory that there's some perl construct of the form

KEYWORD ( RE1 .. RE2 ) {

where (for instance) reading a file the code will only be executed 
after RE1 has been encountered and before RE2 has been encountered.
for instance 

KEYWORD ( /<head>/i .. /<\/head>/i ) {
	process headers for web page;

Am I remembering a dream or is this a feature of the language?
If it is a feature, what is the keyword?

It's not something I'm finding in `man perlsyn` or `man perlfunc`
