I'm trying to assing a user's input to a string.. why when i chomp the input and use print Dumper does the outcome look like this:
I typed the word enter

with chomp:
';AR1 = 'Enter;

with no chomp:
$VAR1 = 'Enter
';
my $input = <>;
         
      chomp ($input);

The $input after <> will have a newline character on it.  The chomp will remove the newline character.   If there is a newline, the Dumper will display it.
