I have a mail form. When it is submitted the $message field contains carriage returns that make it into the database as carriage returns, but when the email gets sent the message field is run together. I'm reading it in with:
Then doing one of these. I've tried them all:
$message =~ s/\n/\<br\>/g;
$message =~ s/\n/<br>/g;
$message =~ s/\n/<br\>/g;
None of them work. The source of the email shows white space between paragraphs, but because it's an HTML email the lines are run together when the user reads it. I need to convert those spaces to <br>
. What am I missing?
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
