I recommend you replace the son; sorta' like s/son/$new_and_less_error-prone_son/.

Oh, right; that's not easy to do... and maybe his age-ist comment and rudeness have their roots close to the tree from which they fell? I certainly hope not, and see nothing in your post to support such an untoward notion... so, what now?

Got it! Whip thru "Beginning Perl" and then whup his butt with code he can't match!

BTW, I am considerably more aged than you, young whippersnapper!

    Brother, Your advice is well taken . Though my son is brilliant programmer in c and c++ and damn good in embedding and his perl knowledge is limited because of speed issue . I am also a engineer involved with town planning and developing certain new cities but programming when challenged by my son though in a very polite mode was too tough. Six months back I tried c and when I reached pointers I crashed my computer three times and then one of my friend advised to learn perl and after studying about 5 books in perl I challenged my son that can you start perl in interactive mode in windows and he could not reply and i have done in a single linar

      Clearly you need to stop asking your son for programming advice. C/C++ is not a good place to start, and yes, you can get an interactive prompt with Perl. (there's more to it than a simple command-line option, but still, it can be done.)

      Instead, ask here. We know far more about Perl than your son, and can give you the best answers. Don't give up!

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
        mY MAIN questions is any perl monk can do perl in inractive mode like they do it in python or ruby

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
