Regexp::Common::whitesUser(Contributed Perl DocumRegexp::Common::whitespace(3)

NAME
       Regexp::Common::whitespace -- provides a	regex for leading or trailing
       whitescape

SYNOPSIS
	   use Regexp::Common qw /whitespace/;

	   while (<>) {
	       s/$RE{ws}{crop}//g;	     # Delete surrounding whitespace
	   }

DESCRIPTION
       Please consult the manual of Regexp::Common for a general description
       of the works of this interface.

       Do not use this module directly,	but load it via	Regexp::Common.

   $RE{ws}{crop}
       Returns a pattern that identifies leading or trailing whitespace.

       For example:

	       $str =~ s/$RE{ws}{crop}//g;     # Delete	surrounding whitespace

       The call:

	       $RE{ws}{crop}->subs($str);

       is optimized (but probably still	slower than doing the s///g
       explicitly).

       This pattern does not capture under "-keep".

SEE ALSO
       Regexp::Common for a general description	of how to use this interface.
