Use a character class to deal with LF CR and CRLF line endings. A standard newline after the
maintains readability.

    $INPUT{'comments'} =~ s/[\r\n]+/<br>\n/g;

    That isn't a good pattern to use, because it means that two line-breaks in the input, such as used to indicate a paragraph break, become only one in the output.

      You're right. s/\r\n|\r|\n/<br>\n/g is better.

      cheers

[1nickt]: ... sign I have seen ...
[1nickt]: Now that one made me hopeful! First time not angry in a long time when I saw that kid.
[Discipulus]: i propend for removing: why? because we are so few that we must find i minimal common divisor, this is certainly Perl not our (anyway private) thougths. And i say this still wondering because i love a lot freedom of expression. And i say this not for roho
[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
[1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
