in thread How to copy an array to a hash?

By using split m/\s+=\s+|\n+/, $input; you don't even have to "clean" empty lines. The \n+ takes care of that.

\n means linefeed on any OS: it automagically transforms itself in whatever sequence is used in that particular OS.

The only problem you might encounter is when you use files made under one OS on another OS. Then the line-endings might not match as one expects.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
