in thread How do I remove newline character from a number got from unix command
I was using chomp($year) and so not returning expected result. Thanks
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.
