in reply to Perl/Tk Chatterbox Client

If you cut-and-paste from this page, you can use the following to remove the continuation "+" signs and reconstruct the file correctly:
perl -ne 'chomp; if (/^\+(.*)$/) { $last.=$1 } \ else { print "$last\n"; $last=$_ } \ END { print "$last\n" }' >

    This is easier to type:

    perl -pe 'chomp;s/^\+//||s/^/\n/;END{print"\n"}' # Unix perl -pe "chomp;s/^\+//||s/^/\n/;END{print qq.\n.}" # Win32

    And you can drop the END{...} part if you just append an extra blank line to the input or don't mind the missing final newline on the output.

    isn't it easier to click on the "d/l code" to download the code????
