Thankyou.

I have just one other query. You seem to have used => as a comma replacement. I know this is alternate notation when defining a hash but will Perl always interpret this as a comma?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    The => digraph is mostly just a synonym for the comma operator. It's useful for documenting arguments that come in pairs. As of release 5.001, it also forces any word to the left of it to be interpreted as a string.
