Sorry tedd, this is broken. It doesn't solve problems with runs of
greater than 2 newlines which is even in the example :) I would
use the following instead which is also line break agnostic with
final output in the style for your system:
If that is all (i.e., removing double linefeeds), then this will do it:
$text_array = array();
$text_array = explode("\n\n", $input_text);
$output_text = implode("\n",$text_array);
$data = preg_replace( "#[\r\n]+#", PHP_EOL, $input );
It's not broken according to my "given", which was "If that is all

does exactly what was stated.
Actually, his comment didn't say double line feeds... his comment
said I want THIS to look like THAT. And THIS had a triple line feed
and THAT completely normalized it to a single line feed. I realize
you misunderstood the problem, but where I work, clients don't think
a solution based on incorrect presumptions is a valid solution for a
clearly defined problem :)
Okay, so I didn't correctly identify and understand the problem from
the client (the list), but my solution worked for the problem I
Doh, what's funny is I fixed it in my test script but had already
pasted into my email and forgot to update that *lol*. Good catch!
You correctly identified and understood the problem, but failed to
provide a working solution to the client (the list).
It's a good thing that we both have clients who understand we're not
Let's just agree that we both can identify, understand, and solve
such minor problems.
