Wow, something as simple as a \, that worked perfectly. I wish I knew what exactly that did, guess I need to go research what an array reference is :) Thanks!

    You could consider arming yourself with some of the many wonderful Perl books around as well:
    
    Effective Perl Programming - D'Foy et al
    Conway's OO Perl
    MJD's Higher Order Perl
    
    In particular I would recommend the Perl Cookbook.
    

      You suggest these to someone who is yet to learn about references? They are excellent books, but really not appropriate for a beginner!

      True laziness is hard work

        Each of them look at refs from a practical point of view - you don't learn to ride a bike by reading about what a pedal is. That said maybe HOP is a gear change too far.
