in reply to Context tutorial

The way you print in the first example:

perl -e "@now = localtime(); for $now(@now) {print $now;}"

is tricky because the result looks rather like a scalar (a sort of big integer)

and does not show the "list form" we got from the context. Something like :
perl -e "@now = localtime(); print join(',',@now);"
should give a better "image".

More, unfortunately, the "scalar" output is a string of enumerated words

which looks more like a list !

(first impression is important for a tutor ;-)
