Gather more data about what perl is doing. Print out the value of $line, paying close attention to the line ending. Save the return value of chomp $line, print it, and see if it is what you expect.

    Printed out the value of $line before and after chomp-ing, and it looked just like I expected. With a single newline before, and no newline after. The return value of chomp is the number of things chomped, so I expected a 1. I got a 1. No surprises there.
