in reply to fixing what textareas do to input

Perhaps: $data =~ s/(\r\n|\n\r|\r)/\n/g This converts CR's, LF's, and any combination of the two into a single newline (I hope... haven't tested it).

    If you output the textarea input in HTML you might consider changing the right hand side of Zoogies regexp to /<br>\n/g
    -- bash$ :(){ :|:&};:

    Would $data =~ s/(\r|\n){1,2})/\n/g work as well? (Unfortunately, I don't have time to test it out-- and I'm notorious for FUing my regexes the first time out.)
