The problem is that when you read in the lines, each ends with a newline. So you have to remove those with chomp. I'm guessing the problem you had was running chomp on your output, not on your input.

Incidentally, unless there's a reason you need all of the input in an array, you might find it a lot more efficient to deal with each line as it comes in. That is,

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; my $file = '/home/steven/x.x-sort'; open(INFO, $file) or die "Couldn't open $file: $!"; while (<INFO>){ chomp; print "\n$_&email=you%40there.c +om\n"; } close(INFO) or die "Error writing $file: $!";
If for whatever reason your code is more complicated and you really do need the @lines array, you need to chomp it, as in chomp(@lines = <INFO>), which will remove the trailing newlines from each line.

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.
