in reply to Output split over two lines

perl is doing what you told it to do:
my $yen = <STDIN>;

Now the "\r?\n" is still attached to the contents of the variable $yen. You want to say

chomp(my $yen = <STDIN>);

See chomp and chop.

<update>

See also perlvar for $/.

--shmem

update: changed "\n" to "\r?\n" above, and /s/chop/chomp/, since chop chops one character, while chomp removes a trailing $/ (which might be "\r\n" or "\r". Thanks to ikegami for telling me in a /msg.
