wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Ang Mga Monks!
I raped this code from BBQ to solve this problem (with thanks to Skeeve, benn and fglock; and yes, dear Skeeve, I learned a whole lot in the process!) I'm still a tried and true newbie for sure, but this was a great learning exercise (with one of the best lessons being How To RTFM.

Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats.
