NAME

Text::Chomped - A chomp and chop that will return the chomped and chopped

VERSION

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

    # Old way
    sub sentence {
        my $value = <<_END_
A quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog
_END_
        chomp $value;
        return $value;
    }

    # New way
    use Text::Chomped;

    sub sentence { chomped <<_END_ }
A quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog
_END_

    # Chomp a list (have to use [], sorry)

    my @got = chomped [ "A\n", "b", "c\n", ... ]

    # ... or ...
    my $got = chomped [ "A\n", "b", "c\n", ... ]
    $got->[0] # A

DESCRIPTON

Text::Chomped will export chomped and chopped which behave like chomp and chop except return the cho[mp]ped value rather than what was cho[mp]ped off (the character)

Unfortunately subroutine prototyping in Perl cannot ape the builtin chomp/chop prototype, so you'll have to pass in an ARRAY reference if you want to chomp/chop a list

Another consequence of the above, is that we can't use $_ without making the interface annoying, so you can't do:

    map { chomped } "A\n", "b", "c\n"

You have to do:

    map { chomped $_ } "A\n", "b", "c\n"
