I think \r is the newline sep for a mac. The variable you want to play with
is $/, if you do
$/ = "\r";
at domain 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 at domain array as at domain 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
at domain array = split("\r", $the_web_page);
