I have a file with a sequence of hex numbers, one per line. I need to get them all on one line, comma delimited. I can get the comma on the end, but how do I join up all my little scalars into an array and print?

So far I have  perl -wnl -e 's/$/,/g;print' my-devs which gives me

0001,
0002,
etc...

I want 0001,0002

thanks.

On windows, replace single quote ' with double quote "

#If you already have the comma's, and just need to join the lines:
perl -pe 'chomp' file.txt
 
#If you need to add comma's and join the lines:
perl -pe 's/[\r\n]+/,/' file.txt

Open in new window
