( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I guess there are alternatives, but it works:

# can't be called with a literal string as arg # but that wasn't asked for :) sub appendMissingSlash { return $_[0] .= substr($_[0], -1) eq "/" ? "" : "/"; } my $string = "/tmp/check"; appendMissingSlash($string); print $string,"\n"; __END__ /tmp/check/

Update: I didn't use a regex, as other examples given suggest, because we know the position and the character to check for, using the regex engine seemed overkill to me
