I'm currently a college student learning Java based programming. I just learned about the existence Perl and when I was offered the chance to learn Perl through one-on-one teaching and this web site I jumped all over it. Currently I'm learning the different format between Java and Perl, which involves changing Java programs in Perl programs.

[choroba]: Perl to the rescue!
[Corion]: hippo: At least for the German translation, the wordplay is translated as well
[Discipulus]: always! but if i can ask choroba why you always use the inverted (to me) form 1 == $.?
[choroba]: To avoid accidental overwriting of the variable in if ($x = 3)
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: Auch in hessisch? Mer wasses net.
[Corion]: Hmm - I'm not sure, I haven't read the mundart/slang translations ;)
[Eily]: $F[1] =~ s/^0//r could be written as (0+$F[1]). It's less explicit though
