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.

    Or you could just use:

    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.

[marioroy]: erix are you using csh
Discipulus uh the link was for cmd.exe the bash one
[marioroy]: If yes, for redirection to work, one might do the following
[marioroy]: `bash -c "clang --version 2>/dev/null"`
[choroba]: Sane people don't use csh
[marioroy]: the 1>&2 will work, not shown
[marioroy]: sorry, did not know which if cmd.exe or unix (bash)
