in reply to Odd workings of split

It seems odd that, if what you want to do is to "remove newlines," that you do not use the obvious regex to do that.   If you want to "take the command up to the first newline if any," split will work fine, in a short subroutine, with an if-statement to supply an empty-string for undef.   Two (gasp!) lines of code ... problem solved.

    Sometimes Iím in a regexy mood and would do a lot of things with regexes ó I was feeling oddly anti-regex when I wrote this and hence my preference to splitís 0th result. Itís also anÖ obvious way, I guess :)

[Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
[marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
[Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
LanX needs to see Freddy Mercury'
