One bit. Oh, you weren't talking
ASCII? :-) Larry now uses ``Perl'' to signify the
language proper and ``perl'' the implementation of it, i.e. the current
interpreter. Hence Tom's quip that ``Nothing but perl can parse Perl.'' You
may or may not choose to follow this usage. For example, parallelism means
``awk and perl'' and ``Python and Perl'' look ok, while ``awk and Perl''
and ``Python and perl'' do not.
