Using a hash

Posted on 2000-02-20

I am using this code:

@data = <DIRADMIN>;

#Fill the hash with translated language
%lang = map { split /\|/ } @data;
$r_la = \%lang;

The file test.lang contains:

Notax|geen BTW

When I now call the following:

<a href="test.html>r_la->{'Total'}</a>

The output is:
<a href="test.html>Totaal

After "Totaal" I get an break.
How to make it not to break the line!!!

It's nothing to do with the fact thats its a hash, but that you are not getting rid of the \n character from your input file....


open ( F, "test.lang") || die "Can't open file $!\n";
while (<F>) {
      my ($t1, $t2) = split(/\|/);
      $lang{$t1} = $t2;

Should work....
