( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Well, maybe I'm not certain. I hit the Return key in the email form. In all the other scripts I've used /n and it worked fine. I've tried /n and /r and neither work. I'm stumped. Here's what I'm doing.
Message field as it appears in database: This is a test message. This is line 2 of test message. #This is how I'm getting it from the database... $SQL="SELECT * FROM table WHERE name = '$name'"; &Do_SQL; $pointer = $sth->fetchrow_hashref; $message = $pointer->{'message'}; $message =~ s/\n/\<br\>/g; Output: This is a test message. This is line 2 of test message. If I View Source it shows: This is a test message. This is line 2 of test message.
I'm wondering if I have to do something special before it gets stuffed in the database, but I don't think so. I'm doing it the same way I always have.
