Removing carriage returns from a string

I am currently using in my Perl CGI programs.  When I retrieve values from a multi line text area it is possible that the value returned could have carriage returns in it.  Is there anyway to examine this value and remove all carriage returns that are embedded in it ?

I would be grateful for all help offered regarding this.

Thanks in advance

$field =~ s/[\n\r]//g;

will strip out all carriage return linefeed characters.

hope this helps

if $text has the text stored, you can simply say

$text =~ s/[\n\r]//g
