in reply to Text strangeness after using SMB to get a file

Since you mention SMB, I am assuming the files come from a Windows machine of some sort. Chances are that the files have DOS line endings, but your script is running on Solaris, which is assuming *nix line endings. Try running the file through a dos2unix utility to change the line endings first.

    perl -i.bak -pe 's/\r\n/\n/' *

    Fancy a yourname@perl.me.uk? Just ask!!!

      So instead of:

      chomp($csvLine);

      I could do:

      $csvLine =~ s/\r\n//;

      ?

      Never moon a werewolf!

        If you know it's always in DOS format.
