    That will stop at every newline and continue again after it:
    $ perl -we'$string = "abcdef\nghijk\nlmno\npqr\nst\nu"; > print map { "$_\n" } $string =~ /.{1,5}/g;' abcde f ghijk lmno pqr st u
    You either want the //s flag on the match or some other way of dealing with newlines.
      thanks, you are right //s is fine for me.
