Show us the actual code that you used when you "tried to capture whitespaces". Also tell us what "its not working" really means: what did it do, and how did that differ from what you wanted to do. These details will help us help you.

    i used this,

    $string =~ s/\t/ /g; $string =~ s/^\s*$//g;

    but the white spaced lines was not getting replaced.

      Are you sure there is nothing but whitespace on the whole line?

        White spaces and tabs only.
