    regards to algebra...there are no built-in functions. there are modules though for this. search for algebra on CPAN.
    the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H

    An algebra in the broader sense is just a set and operators that work on that set.

    For example the set of all possible strings and the concatenation operator . form an algebra. Check the wiki for more details.

    When you have an open-ended question that isn't specific to a sample program, you might first want to try one of the following (using the current question as an example) click on SuperSearch (at the top right of the screen), and specify Operators
    go to and specify Perl Operators
    go to CPAN and specify Operators
