Question on "is chomped"
Message ID:
While E02 states that "is chomped" sets the chomped property of
afilehandle, I didn't find any detailed specifications in any of the
As or Ss.

So - is "is chomped" always the equivalent of:

while ( <FH> ) {

For instance - you have opened the file rw

Or, the idea of having mutator and non-mutator versions of chomp (and
other functions) have been kicked around the list.

Any definitive word yet?
