in reply to Opening text files with CR format


have a look at perlvar; search for $INPUT_RECORD_SEPARATOR

You can set that variable to the needed character/string to parse your files...

Example snippet:

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; # ... for my $file ( @files ) { if ( open my $fh, '<', $file ) { # see perldoc perlvar local $/ = "\x0d"; @lines = <$fh>; } else { warn "$file: $!\n"; } }
