in thread Thoughts on designing a file format.

I'm missing something here. On DOS if you write print FILE "some text\n"; you will get "\r\n" in the file. If you do the same thing on Unix you get just "\n". What are you outputing? Are you setting $INPUT_RECORD_SEPERATOR and $OUTPUT_RECORD_SEPERATOR to something other than default? Otherwise chomp is going to break for example, it will remove "\r\n" on DOS and just "\n" on Unix leaving a "\r" at the end of every line. It seems like a lot of trouble to deal with something that ftp clients do automatically... if I copy your program and data file over to Unix I have to then change the line endings back to CR/LF before it works???

[Corion]: Meh. I need to find myself a better "programming" feed than r/programming (which is just HackerNews reposts and advertisements, very little code). Maybe I should select a list of links that I liked on r/programming and then google for ...
[Corion]: ... an aggregator site that also listed (ideally) all of these links once. And maybe also have an exclude list to blacklist some of the most spammy links that the site may have never mentioned at all
[marto]: I gave up reading HN at all, and feel much better for it :P
[Corion]: Now, how to best automate that Google search ... :-)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
[Corion]: The good posts on HN are the non-computing posts. Most of the other stuff is maybe relevant to you if you are 20 and live in Silicon Valley...
[Corion]: Two attributes that don't describe me.
[Corion]: Maybe I should also write a curator for HN or simply not read it anymore, like you do.
