How can i replace %0A with <br>

How can i replace %0A with <br>

How can i replace %0A with <br>

Hi !

When i read form with Perl:

read(STDIN, $buffer, $ENV{'CONTENT_LENGTH'});
@pairs = split(/&/, $buffer);
foreach $pair (@pairs) {
($name, $value) = split(/=/, $pair);
$value =~ tr/+/ /;

# $value =~ tr/%0A/<br>/;

$value =~ s/%([a-fA-F0-9][a-fA-F0-9])/pack("C", hex($1))/eg;
$FORM{$name} = $value;

, how can i replace 'Enter' with <br>. I tried $value =~ tr/%0A/<br>/; but it does not work.

Any ideas ???


RE: How can i replace %0A with <br>

Hi Mike !

$value =~ s/\n/<br>/; works only if you have one 'enter' in your data.

My situation is this:

I have textfield and i want replace all %0A with <br>.

When i write to textfield and press enter when i want new paragraph, output is:

paragraph1 paragraph2 paragraph3

, but datafile looks:


I want that datafile looks:



RE: How can i replace %0A with <br>

Try putting a 'g' on the end of the 's' command to make it global.  ie;

$value =~ s/\n/<br>/g;

That should replace all "\n" characters in the text.
