Dear fello monks,
There is a strange behaviour with the write() function, that is not documented:
a little program would be the best way to explain
format STDOUT =
$a, $b, $c
$a = "a";
$b = "b";
$c = "c ";
I'd expect something like this to be printed:
'a b c '
What I get instead is
'a b c'
In the documentation there's no advice that trailing spaces will be automatically removed, nor a way to avoid that is descripted.
