Oh Wow!

I bow to tilly!

I am going to REALLY study this: it works! correctly! it's one-third the size! it looks tricky but not f**** insane! and NO POINTER ARITHMETIC!!!!

This is the sort of answer that shows that i'm a tyro at perl AND why! I'm obviously still stuck in some sort of tunnel vision caused by programming in c/c++.

To me this is a great Zen Koan to meditate on!

Thanks tilly, and everyone who responded to this query!
