in reply to splitting pipe into new line

It's not clear to me what you want. If you want to replace all pipes with a newline, you can use s///:

use warnings; use strict; my $description = 'a|b|c|d|e'; $description =~ s/\|/\n/g; print "$description\n"; __END__ a b c d e

Or, if you really want an array, you can add newlines using map

my $description = 'a|b|c|d|e'; print "$description\n"; my (@new) = map {"$_\n"} split (/\|/, $description); print @new;
