Not knowing the names of Perl's cryptic $punctuation variables does not a bad programmer make. Better to know how and where to look on the (many) occassions you find you don't know something. perldoc, Super Search, Google are usually good bets.

    Thanks for your kindness. I did search first, it was just a matter of not knowing what to search for.

    Do you know of a cheatsheet of all the those cryptic variables?

    Skip
      perldoc perl will show you a table of contents for all of perldoc. (See here: perl) perlvar has the variable names for example. perlfunc has all the functions. You can view a specific function if you already know its name by perldoc -f functionname. etc. etc. perldoc itself is a bit cryptic at first, but it's not too hard to figure out.

        Thank you. perlvar is now in my search string for help.

        Skip

        Much appreciated.
