in reply to Text strangeness after using SMB to get a file

Since you mention SMB, I am assuming the files come from a Windows machine of some sort. Chances are that the files have DOS line endings, but your script is running on Solaris, which is assuming *nix line endings. Try running the file through a dos2unix utility to change the line endings first.

    Or you could just use:

    perl -i.bak -pe 's/\r\n/\n/' *

    Fancy a yourname@perl.me.uk? Just ask!!!

      So instead of:

      chomp($csvLine);

      I could do:

      $csvLine =~ s/\r\n//;

      ?

      Never moon a werewolf!

        If you know it's always in DOS format.

[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: I found the L<name|section> syntax, which describes linking to a perl manual page, and L<text|url> to link to a web page. The reason I asked was because I was on search.cpan.org looking at a module,
[atcroft]: and it referred to several other modules, but the links went to metacpan.org. I found that a bit of a surprise, and it got me wondering if there was a "standard" way to link to other modules in the documentation on CPAN.
[Lady_Aleena]: atcroft. maybe look at raw PODs. There is also L<foo|http://foo. com> and some might be linking directly to meta::cpan.
[Lady_Aleena]: Oops, didn't read the L<text|url> right.
