Formatting Inputby akwe-xavante (Novice)
|on Jun 14, 2012 at 15:20 UTC||Need Help??|
akwe-xavante has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
A Formatting Input Question - I Think?
I have a web form, when several sentances of text are entered and or paragraphs of text with spaces i have a problem
When the data is processed by a perl script and either printed back to the browsers screen or written to a PDF Document the blank lines between sentances or and paragraphs are removed and the text is printed out as a single block of text
How can i prevent these blank lines between sentances or paragraphs from being removed?
If user inputs lines or paragraphs with spaces i want these blank lines to be present when the data is printed to the browsers screen and in the PDF Document created
Hope someone can help me
