String::Trim - trim whitespace from your strings
use String::Trim; print "Do it? "; trim(my $response = <>); print "'$response'\n";
String::Trimtrims whitespace off your strings. chomp trims only
$/(typically, that's newline), but
trimwill trim all leading and trailing whitespace.
Returns the string with all leading and trailing whitespace removed. Trimming undef gives you undef. Alternatively, you can trim in-place.
my $var = ' my string '; my $trimmed = trim($var); # OR trim($var);
trimalso knows how to trim an array or arrayref:
my @to_trim = (' one ', ' two ', ' three '); my @trimmed = trim(@to_trim); # OR trim(@to_trim); # OR my $trimmed = trim(\@to_trim); # OR trim(\@to_trim);
trimis often used by beginners, who may not understand how to spin their own. While String::Util does have a
trimfunction, it depends on Debug::ShowStuff, which depends on Taint, which fails the test suite, and doesn't appear to be maintained. This module installs, is actively maintained, and has no non-core dependencies.
