I think \r is the newline sep for a mac. The variable you want to play with
is $/, if you do
$/ = "\r";
@array = <FILE>;
then perl will split the contents of the file on occurences of \r.
By the way if the page is big you should use
do some stuff with $_
instead of using @array as @array will read the whole thing in before doing
anything else, the same goes for for loops.
Also, why do you download the page, dump it in a file and then open that
file? Why not download the page and just do
@array = split("\r", $the_web_page);
