I have a Perl script on Windows.

For some reason, Perl is automatically outputting CR LF (\x0d  \x0a) when I only explicitly have when i only have   \x0a in the string.  Help! Driving me nuts.
open FH_temp, ">$tempfile" ;
open FH_input, "<$file";
 
while(<FH_input>){
   $_ =~ s/[\x0a\x0d]//g;   #remove all CR or LF 
   $_ = $_ . "\x0a";                   #add LF
   print FH_temp $_;
}

Open in new window

Hi rmundkowsky,

after the open, add
