in thread Base sequence length in fasta format file

NL len isn't going to be an issue, as long as he doesn't binmode the filehandle.

CRLF pairs will be translated to a single LF on input, and translated back going the other way.

But if you prefer to chomp then add the newline, that works too :)

    Er. Well a couple of test prove you right.

    But also prove me right: (phew ;-)

    print length <DATA>,$\; print length <DATA>,$\; __DATA__ ABCDEF ABCDEF
    7 6
    So there still could be an issue here... :-)

    Although granted it isnt the one I was harping on about...
