in reply to String Newline Question

it wasn't part of the real question, nonetheless it's another good point:

if you had a string:

$string = "something\n0999\nsomething\n";

and you matched against it ending with 999 with the /m option, it would also work. For example using this regex would yield a pass for the regex:

if ($string =~ /999$/m) { print "pass"; }

/m just treats the $string as a multi-line string and if it finds 999 at the end of any line in $string (remember $ means before the newline) then the regex would still work. I thought i'd just throw that in cuz it was useful :).
