( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Fellow monks,
I am using Text::Bastardize to output user input in pig latin. But, I am encountering a problem
When I assign `<>' to a scalar, and assign the scalar to `$_', it works fine. but when I `chomp' <>, it will not work.
Sample code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Text::Bastardize; my $line = <>; $_ = $line; my $latin = Text::Bastardize->new(); $latin->charge($_); print $latin->pig(),"\n"

That code works; but outputs with an appended newline.

When I use:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Text::Bastardize; my $line = <>; $_ = chomp($line); my $latin = Text::Bastardize->new(); $latin->charge($_); print $latin->pig(),"\n"

It doesn't output anything. I do not know whether I am making a basic error, or if Text::Bastardize's `charge' doesn't like the use of chomp for some reason

Please help :)

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.

    What does the "s" stand for in "perls"? (Whence perls)
