Exploding new lines PHP.

I am using the following code to explode new lines in form input but each array item has a trailing new line. I have tried trimming by \r, \n but no luck. $f_choices = @explode("\n", $choices[$k]); Thanks!

From the HTML specification I was sure that CRs weren't allowed in textareas. Looks like I was wrong. I will try those tomorrow. Thanks!
