what if i don't want to always print out a newline? Simple, just use printf.

For years, I have been sitting here, railing and fuming silently against the supposed "brokenness" of printf's disrespect for -l. It's something I'd always put aside as a non-orthogonal oddity of the language.

My anger blinded me to the possibility of using my opponent's strength to my own advantage -- a classic judo move.

Thank-you for letting me see the error of my ways.

[LanX]: interpolation! like in a "string"
[Lady_Aleena]: LanX, I just never thought I would be explaining perl regex to others. It is usually others explaining why a regex isn't working to me.
[Discipulus]: congratulations shmem! (was my last upvote? ;=)
