    So...

    The documentation for chomp tells you how chomp works and what it returns.
    It is the contents of the variable itself that you should verify.

    Update: to be concise, I added "the contents of" to the line above.

      What did it return? - 1

      What did you expect? - 2013

      How did you verify the result? - by printing

      How did you fail to read the documentation? - beginner(sure for perl)
