in thread Problem with files read to array split on empty lines
Tobyink, thank you. The files were downloaded through the server's cPanel web UI. After your initial reply i made a attempt at such a regex but my eyes were starting to glass over. I will try your suggestion and report back, although currently the server appears to be down :/ I would have thought that changing $/ to the empty string would have caught all instances of an empty line (as has been suggested in other nodes) but clearly I'm missing something.
