in reply to Trouble with a string

@VMSHUT = `cat /tmp/virshlist_shutdown`;

You will also need to remove the line terminator from each line of the array using chomp otherwise each file name will have a spurious line terminator at the end.

$ cat zzz Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 $ perl -e ' > @lines = `cat zzz`; > print qq{>$_<\n} for @lines;' >Line 1 < >Line 2 < >Line 3 < $ perl -e ' > @lines = `cat zzz`; > chomp @lines; > print qq{>$_<\n} for @lines;' >Line 1< >Line 2< >Line 3< $

I hope this is helpful.

Cheers,

JohnGG

    Thanks, I think it's the chomp. It's always the simple things.. And it doesn't help that I'm 10 years rusty and not the good with PERL to begin with. :)
