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

I do a lot of work in Windows (Cygwin), macOS, and Linux, and I have a Subversion repository containing a bunch of dotfiles I use on all three platforms. As a result I do, in fact, wind up getting a nice healthy mix of CRLF and LF line endings in all environments I work in. Because of that, $/ = "\r\n"; won't work.

Also, I can confirm that chomp in Cygwin perl will only remove \n from lines in text files with CRLF line endings ($/ is \n by default).

I just now learned about \R which *will* do the trick:


As an added bonus it will also work with old Macintosh line endings (\r)!

I honestly don't know why chomp doesn't do this in the year of our lord two thousand eighteen, other than backward combatibility.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
