( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello. I've been stuck for over an hour now. I can't figure out how to get File::Grep's fgrep to return chomped values in its matches. I've tried chomping $file, chomping $_ in the fgrep, and more. Am I using it wrong, not understand something in the module description, or just plain out of luck and have to munge the values of matches later?

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Grep qw(fgrep); use Data::Dumper; my @line = fgrep { /^[2-6] .+$/ } *DATA; print Dumper(\@line); __DATA__ 2 foo 3 bar 4 baz 5 qux 6 quux 7 thingy 8 widget

The output is

$VAR1 = [ { 'filename' => *::DATA, 'count' => 5, 'matches' => { '1' => '2 foo ', '2' => '3 bar ', '3' => '4 baz ', '4' => '5 qux ', '5' => '6 quux ' } } ];

I'm at the end of my abilities.

No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!
