Thanks to everyone and their input..
I like the variety of ways to do this.. some obvious, now that I see them, and others more complicated.. this helps me see different angles to the issue and is much appreciated.
in reply to For Loops and Reversing output
I'd like to clarify on an issue or two:
I do want to use reverse, BUT, I was told that the work I am going into at my new job may need to make use of printing backwards w/o using reverse. (They did not specify why.)
I am sorry someone feels as if I pawned off my homework assignment. I actually was doing web and book searches for a couple of hours before I decided to post here.. BEING NEW to perl, I wasn't sure what to look for, or search for.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to search for stuff, AND I am not meaning, how to use the search pages, but terminology and what not for trying to find what I am looking for?
