I’m so used to dealing with comma-delimited lists in ColdFusion that I would sometimes take a data file that had one item per line and replace the newline characters with commas.
It’s easy to use the carriage return [chr(13)] and line feed [chr(10)] characters as list delimiters, though, and remove the intermediary step. Here’s a quick example:
<cfsavecontent variable="data"> this is a list with one word per line </cfsavecontent> <cfoutput> <ol> <cfloop list="#data#" delimiters="#chr(13)##chr(10)#" index="line"> <li>#line#</li> </cfloop> </ol> </cfoutput>
Which produces the following:
(I can’t believe I didn’t think of this until today!)
