This is almost too trivial, but perhaps it will be useful to perl fugitives searching for a pythonic way to remove line endings from strings.

The answer: use rstrip()

# single-liners using rstrip()

strvar = strvar.rstrip()

strlist = [l.strip for l in strlist]

filelines = [l.rstrip() for l in open(filename)]

Not quite the same as chomp. 'chomp' removes the newline only. An equivalent call would be:

strvar = strvar.rstrip('\n')

A bare 'rstrip' removes all whitespace from the end.
