RE: Find first line FOLLOWING a sequence of matches

I need to futz with it some more, hopefully tomorrow.
But, one issue that I'm having is that using C-w to yank word at point doesn't 
cross punctuation, so I can't use c-w to grab the word at point into the search 
buffer (which would be quick & easy.
IE zipc^odes_hold
            Pt here
        C-w pulls zipcodes, not zipcodes_hold
If there's a way I can define words to only be bounded by whitespace I should 
be able to whip up a keyboard macro for the rest I believe.
