in reply to Splitting a Sentence

substitue the newlines with spaces, otherwise

this is line one rous is the first word of line two

will become

this is line onerous is the first word of line two

which is not what you want

open my $fh, "<", "test" or die "test: $!" while (<$fh>) { chomp; $s .= " $_"; }

or shorter

my $s = join " " => split m/\n/ => do { local (@ARGV, $/) = "test"; <> };

Or even shorter

my ($s = do { local (@ARGV, $/) = "test"; <> }) =~ s/\n+/ /g;

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    TIMTOWTDI - chomp in a map and join seems fairly concise yet readable.

    $ perl -Mstrict -Mwarnings -E ' open my $inFH, q{<}, \ <<EOD or die $!; Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 EOD my $wholeText = join q{ }, map { chomp; $_ } <$inFH>; say $wholeText;' Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 $

    I hope this is of interest.
