Regular expressions can handle this just fine as well:
my $string = "ello"; $string =~ s/^/Henry said H/;

[Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
