( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks for this, webfiend.

I was pleased with the tutorial - neither just kick around the bucket nor loads of stuff to take in. Also: you explain in a "conversational manner" (if I may call it that :3), I appreciate that in an introduction! Makes it less heavy to take in. I as a neophyte appreciated this.

As for me: now I'm moving on to make some text-based adventures! woopwoop :D Feels like a nice way into Perl for me, oh and linked here's what my first ever Perl document looks like!

# hello.pl # - Displays a warm greeting # - Puts; print, string-variables, chomp and clear to practice system("clear"); print "\n What is thy name?\n\n\nYour reply:"; my $name = <STDIN>; chomp ($name); system("clear"); print "\n and From whence dosth thou hail?\n\n\nYour reply:"; my $usrhomerealm = <STDIN>; chomp ($usrhomerealm); system("clear"); print "\n ah, Salutations $name of $usrhomerealm!\n\n\n";

Regards
