in reply to Shorten a list...

My program starts by reading in paragraph mode, then chomping. Only groups with more than 1 line can have 1 or more newlines.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use 5.014; { local $/ = ""; while (<DATA>) { chomp; print "$_\n" if tr/\n//; # if 1 or more newlines } } __DATA__ Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5 Group 5 Group 5
prints:
Group 3 Group 3 Group 5 Group 5 Group 5

[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
