    Absolutely. You can do list-oriented programming in Perl as well. The problem that arises is that while doing list-oriented programming you lose the ability to do certain text manipulations without breaking the list-oriented style. For instance, you run afoul of problems with regular expressions over a string if you represent the string as an array. Similarly, you must convert to a list when you read strings in from external sources.

    There are many things that Perl does better for text processing than UCBLogo, but I think UCBLogo wins on this one score.

    print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);

[LanX]: and the code is a bit of a mess
[LanX]: moritz, no ... jsut copy one line of my code
[moritz]: I'm still using the CB, because ambrus's #cbstream makes it bearable
[LanX]: ... the rest is loaded from a node
[holli]: the best course of action would be to transfer the data to something well tested. even if it isnt perl based
[moritz]: but even if I had all the time in the world, I wouldn't spend much on perlmonks
[LanX]: holli: LOL
[LanX]: moritz: why ? family?
