in reply to Cleaning Whitespace from Source Code

perltidy -dws
will create with deleted whitespace.
you can try -mangle to delete newlines and make your script smaller
but it will make your script look absolutely awfull. ;)

See "perltidy -h" or "man perltidy" for more usefull options

kind regards
