in thread Split array and join with results

on further inspection it seem as though its the $colr value in the print out function that seems to be inserting the line break?  print OUT "\n$phn $colr $title\n"; Please can someone help me?

    $colr gets its value (including the newline) from @colours. If you prefer, you can chomp (refer perldoc -f chomp) $colr before you print it.

      Hi Bill, Thank you so much for helping me, I really appreciate it! I've added the chomp function however i get the following error in secureCRT Modification of a read-only value attempted?? I think i've done it correctly:
      foreach my $colr (@COLOURS) { chomp $colr; print OUT "\n$phn $colr $title\n"; }
      How can i fix this? where do i place the chomp function? Thank you :)

        I expected that to work. I forgot that $colr is really an alias for an element of @COLOURS. I cannot think of a perfect fix. For now, remove Readonly from @COLOURS (remember to change the fat comma to an equal.)

        <c> my @COLOURS = <DATA>; <c>
