Form Escapes @#%!???

by Anonymous Monk
on Feb 02, 2000 at 07:29 UTC ( #2700=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

When you parse data from a form with multiple returns, how do you get rid of all the returns in a value with multiple returns in it??? I've tried with tr/\n// and tr/\r// with no results. I guess this could be read as what the @#$% is the control character that i need, such as tr/cP// ???????? Thanks!!!

    tr works, but... you need to add the /d modifier to delete what it found tr/\r//d tr/\n//d

    You could replace any of these: \r \n \f with nothing.

    $formVar =~ s/\n|\r|\f//g;
      cool, thanks all!
