    Have a read through the Tutorial material starting with the "Getting Started with Perl" series.

    use strict; use warnings; are used to pick up errors, normally due to sloppy programming, like mistyping variable names and using variable before they are initialised. If there are errors of that sort in code you post here you are lible for a bit of a drubbing!

    Perl is Huffman encoded by design.
      Thanks to both of you for a big leap forward!

    documentation for perl comes with perl itself, there are unix-style man pages, and there is the 'perldoc' utility that you can use to get information, they are pretty self-explanatory.

    Perl documentation is also made available on, try searching there for 'my' or 'strict' and you'll find more information.

    And .... Google is your friend
