in reply to CHOMP VS. CHOP

chomp, by definition, removes the contents of $/ from the end of a string. Perhaps, if you know that your client will be windows, you should set $/ to \n\r (or is it \r\n, I can never remember). What it comes down to is that windows uses a \r\n combination as it's end of lines, and *nix appropriately uses \n. The sketchy, but easy way to handle this is to do a regex replacement (s/to replace/replacement/). But, that could cripple you should you want multi line data to stick around. My preference would be to remove any instance of \r (your ^M) and chomp when necesary.

    It's \r\n, fo' sho'. Think about it - CR then LF makes up the mystical CRLF in DOSland, and you only need LF in UNIXland.

    Aren't mnemonics great?
