Remove newline characters from text

 / Published in: Perl


This Perl one-liner will remove all newline characters from a text file, replacing them with a space. In the source, all newline characters in the file gearlist.xml are replaced with spaces, and the original file is saved as gearlist.xml.bak

  1. $ perl -i.bak -pe 'chomp; print " ";' gear_list.xml
