Find Sentence

I have two files. One is a large block of text. It has paragraphs, where sentences wrap from line to line. The other file is just a bunch of sentences, one per line. I would like to open the file that has once sentence per line, and see if any of the sentences exist in the large text file. I have to imagine that this would be done in a sort of for each loop. Probably while reading the big text file into an array? I would like for it to echo the sentences that it finds in the big text file.

I have found:
for (@lines) {
  print if /keyword/;
}

Open in new window


Which seems to do what I want but I am not certain how to iterate the for the /keyword/ section, using each line of the other file.
