in reply to New to PERL but how is this better than DOS?

I am very proud of the restraint and friendliness of my fellow monks.

I must say, though, that this is surely a rev-up.

Kevin_Raymer's home node contains gems like:

"Glad to be out here I am willing to code for hire also you can message me in the chatterbox application (is that written in DOS?)"

Someone who has figured out what their home node and chatterbox is for would surely not ask "is that written in DOS"?

Kevin, if you are serious, then it's great that you have finally found a place where you will learn loads of great information about coding as a refuge from the land of DOS.

Incidentally, you may all be interested in an old Sun Solaris humour usenet post: The Dosfish that sails upon the Pea Sea. Enjoy :)

    How 'bout "****Here are some Perl tips for you newbies!*****"?!? Is this supposed to be a keep pouring your ideas thing?

    The "Perl" tips from the home node were copy and pasted verbatim from this page: http://www.allenware.com/icsw/icswidx.htm

    It's the syllabus for Lesson 8, from a course on MS-DOS batch files.

    Please don't feed the troll.
