Subject: an autochomp reading mode?
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 349b
I read one-line files a lot. They usually contain a single variable/ parameter, and usually produced from the command-line, e.g. 'echo foo@bar Show quoted text
> email'. As such, they contain newline which I almost always have to
chomp. Adding something like 'autochomp' option would certainly convenient: read_file('foo.txt', autochomp => 1). Regards, Steven

Or chomp => 1, for that matter. Regards, Steven

that is in my todo queue. a new release is due soon with a lot of fixes and interesting improvements. that one will go into the next release. the problem with your idea is how do you autochomp multiple lines when slurping to a scalar? so that option will only work if you slurp to an array or array ref. thanx, uri -- Uri Guttman ------ uri@stemsystems.com -------- http://www.sysarch.com -- ----- Perl Code Review , Architecture, Development, Training, Support ------ --------- Gourmet Hot Cocoa Mix ---- http://bestfriendscocoa.com ---------

Nice to know that a new release is imminent! Show quoted text

You don't. In a scalar context, we can just chomp the whole file once. That makes perfect sense for one-line files in my case, and doesn't make much sense in a multiple-line files anyway. Of course we can chomp each line in array context. Regards, Steven

well, i can enable it for scalars but it will only make sense for one line files. i will doc it that way. uri -- Uri Guttman ------ uri@stemsystems.com -------- http://www.sysarch.com -- ----- Perl Code Review , Architecture, Development, Training, Support ------ --------- Gourmet Hot Cocoa Mix ---- http://bestfriendscocoa.com ---------
