But of course, there is no reason to ever use \Z (uppercase)--because you can just use \z (lowercase) and specify the \n in your regex:
/$my_regex \n \z/xms

...which makes it clearer what you are doing.

When you are having regex problems, the first thing you want to do is nail down what is in your string:

my $str = "123dog\n"; say "-->$str<--"; --output:-- -->123dog <--
Or, to reveal the ord() of each character in the string:
printf "%vd", $my_str; --output:-- 49.50.51.100.111.103.10 #6 ascii chars in '123dog', but outputs 7 codes. #Checking an ascii chart for the code 10: #line feed. Ah hah, I forgot to chomp() #the string!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
