$/ is set to "\n" by default. Which doesn't answer the question of "what is the representation of "\n" in external text files?".

This is the kind of thing that'll probably work but I was trying to avoid because it's hard to track and get right:

my $nativeSeparator = "\n"; if ($^O =~ /MSWin32|dos|os2|cygwin/) { # not sure what to do about cygwin here. $nativeSeparator = "\x0d\x0a" } elsif ($^O eq 'MacOS') { $nativeSeparator = "\x0d" } elsif ($^O eq 'VMS') { # it depends on file type... what to do? } elsif (ord('A') eq 193) { # what to do for EBCDIC? "\n" may be OK... }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
