in reply to write() removes trailing spaces

There is nothing strange. The following altered code demonstrates that your $c variable contains 13 chars , which you want displayed within 11 space holders (1+10). Two chars werer choped, as per your request .
format STDOUT = @<<<<@<<<<@<<<<<<<<<<END $a, $b, $c . $a = "a"; $b = "b"; $c = "c .bc"; print 'len=',length $c; write(STDOUT);

Produces this output:

len=13 a b c .END

    Hi ioannis

    Thanks for your reply.

    what will happen if $c is only

    $c = "c ";
    The last spaces are removed. This detail is not documented in any of the perl documents.

    "Keep pouring your ideas"
      if $c is set to 'c ', then it will append 9 spaces at the end, so the string can occupy the 11 posisions. (Remember, it is 1 + 10 .)
