( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In perl, there is no code for starting the next line of text. It is something that the operating system determines. That's why you have to use \r\n for a new line (not \n) in MS products, \n for Unices, and \r for Macs. There might even be something out there that wants \n\n or something even weirder.

In any case, to avoid any wackiness, you'll want to make sure the data is treated as a single line.

# We don't want to put text right up against itself so # replace with a space rather than nothing. /s treats it # all as a single line - very important. $message =~ s/\r\n|\n|\r/ /gs;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
