If you're implying that I've suggested to never use "iterators", you cannot be further from the truth.

But just because iterators exists, doesn't mean C-style loop are suddenly bad. Most people discover the world is more than black and white at the age of 4; but many programmers seem not have grasped the idea the world is filled with shades of gray, and even colours.

BTW, I know Perl programs with iterators that are incorrect.

    Well certainly. Do feel free to apply that principle while reading my posts; I certainly write them with the expectation that you're capable of applying critical thought and appreciating nuance.

    BTW, I know Perl programs with iterators that are incorrect.

    As do I. I also know C programs which use strings correctly.
