( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
In short: How could and or should I simplify this?...
$var = `return from some system call`; chomp $var; print "$var";
The aim of the code is to strip the newline from the end of the item returned from system and then print the rest.

Wibble: Monks, I am frequently impressed by the code\solutions\discussions posted here. In my quest to improve myself and my Perl I would like to write better code but I seldom glean insight from the stuff posted as it's too far above my level. I hope I won't displease senior monks too much with this question. The answers I hope will bring the greatest improvment in my current understanding and codeing (as I hope any techniques demonstrated can be applied in other 'in line' simplificaitons).

Title:
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.
