… See In Minutes A Lot Of Complete Code Solutions From Which You Can Copy Pieces of Code And Paste Them Directly In Your Own Script"

Any time you need to read some lines from a file (including the standard input) you must clear the newlines from the end of each line and the chomp function is the best choice to do it.

I received on my site thousands of search queries regarding how to use the Perl chomp function in different situations. The page on my site that is dedicated to this topic contains only a few examples about how to use it, I didn’t have there enough space to cover in detail the most significant cases where you can use it.

So, I selected the most frequently asked questions regarding the Perl chomp topic and I supplied in this eBook the complete solution for all of them.


Now You Can Save Time And Find In Minutes The Answer To Your Question

If you don’t know how to use the Perl chomp function in a specific context, it is most probable you’ll find the answer in this eBook.

Of course you can continue searching trough the forums to find the answer of your question but in this case you need to choose, test and interpret yourself the answer provided in the forums.

In this eBook I give you a lot of working code that you can implement in minutes in your script. And not only that, all the provided snippet codes are fully functional, i.e can be copied and tested in your command line window. Next, they can be integrated in a script and uploaded to your site.

In order to make the scripts very easy to understand, I commented in detail each snippet code so you will not have any problem to understand and implement it.

If you haven’t noticed yet, I give you a working recursive subroutine to go through and chomp your complex data structures. In the example shown in the eBook I exemplify on an array of arrays and on a hash of hashes. You can use this subroutine to perform whatever you want instead of chomp by modifying the code appropriately.

I am a computer professional and my background in the computer field and at University assures me that I offer you a very valuable resource that can make your programming tasks easier.

PPS. This eBook contains almost 50 commented script examples covering more than 25 situations where you need to use the chomp function.
