I hadn't heard of Selena Sol either, arturo.   But I take the point to be that neither MSA nor SS provide enlightenment, and that both should be shunned by the faithful.

For what it's worth, I'm just plain lucky.   Missed MSA and SS, finding the Monastery instead when I needed to learn more than rudimentery Perl for logfile processing.   I have a *lot* to learn, thankfully not to un-learn.

If you really want to see Another Way Not To Do It, is pretty effective.   Ask tilly.   {grin}   (about Google, not about "how not to do it")

Thanks for the compliment, jptxs.   8^)   Wish I deserved it.
