This response is not just irrelevant; it is a near-farcical example of what is wrong with Perlmonks. What does the "strict and warnings" chant buy you in a one-liner? Does defining a constant FIRST as 0 improve the code? Why give an example using delimited fields when the OP is clearly using fixed-width ones?

You parrot some random tropes that will hopefully yield upvotes, but do nothing to answer the question.
Just another Perler interested in Algol Programming.
