Sure, it takes more code. That's what happens when you try to use a general purpose language instead of a task-specific mini-language.

    Greetings all,
    In the end, I ended up simply using a "system" call within Perl:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use POSIX qw(strftime); $|++; my $gmtstring = strftime "%F %H:%I:%S", localtime; my $filename = "symlinked-iso-file-with-limited-lifetime"; my $arg1 = ('-XP . -type l -cmin'); my $arg2 = ('+15'); my $arg3 = ('xargs rm'); system("/usr/bin/find $arg1 $arg2 | $arg3");
    It's just going to have to do, until I become more proficient in Perl.

    Thank you all again, for all your time, consideration, and patience. :)

    --chris

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use perl::always;
    my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
    print $perl_version;

[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally you would have the ease of overhead projection transparencies and pens drawing on them, combined with the computer generated slide text...
[Corion]: Maybe the solution would be a tablet (with pens), like the Wacom tablets, but you still need good software and need to know how to operate it well in an interactive setting ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: the solution depends on who for. Some non-math presentations need to show lots of graphics or photos, with fine details and color. For those, blackboard or overhead transparencies aren't so good (yes, you can print on transparencies, but there's s
[ambrus]: ome quality limits), but film projection or computer projector is fine.
