Regex, String function, Help!

Ok, I have a huge string called  $text . It has a page of written
text on it.
I want to try and get most of the regular sentences out of it.
My idea is to look between  " .;?! " (period, question mark, etc...)
and return the sentence between them.
I just need the words between all "end of sentence characters".

How do I do this?

$mysentence= # everything between "end of sentence characters".

P.S. I could do this with a bunch of for loops, etc.... thought
there might be a more eloquent way with one statement.

@wordsinline = split(" ",$line)
foreach $word(@wordsinline)
if $word !~ [;!:]
   print $sentence
   $sentence =. $word

check the syntax - i hope u get the broad idea.

Thanks  amitpagarwal and Ozo!
Both work, but I think Ozo's was more what I was looking for.
I just finished chapter on regex and will have to
look at Ozo's comment a while (true JAPH ;-) .

Anyways, thanks to you both!
