in reply to Inputing an Operator is it possible?

Placing your angle operator inside of double quotes treats it as a literal "less than" and "greater than" symbol...

Instead try:
chomp($operator = <STDIN>);
with the extra chomp there to get rid of your record input separator, (newline by default) so that you have control over where your newlines go when you print.

Also if you want to add $a and $b instead of printing them out literally, try
print $a + $b, "\n";


Cheers,
Kristina

    I meant "<STDIN>" as quotes to show that is what we are talking about as an English. I am very sorry for confusing you with the string "". That is a good point you make and I will be more careful in the future to be more pacific on my meaning.
