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

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)
