Hi Gang,

I just dont get it!!!

This little snippet of perl should take the contents of the the form field
named 'yourad', strip the double lines and replace them with <p> etc...but
it doesnt matter how I fiddle with it or where I put it nothing happens.
This is really starting to annoy me.  Can anyone offer a clue?

$form{'yourad'}=~ s/\cM/ /g;
$form{'yourad'}=~ s/\n\n/<P>/g;
$form{'yourad'}=~ s/\n/<BR>/g;
