You're guessing wrong, or if I am parsing Wiki code I'm at the end of a long chain which starts with Wiki code and can't help it anyway.

I'm well aware how ugly the input text is, but believe me, I can't fix that.

    So shoot me for asking.
    You're right about your code being ugly though..as it's not a good idea to number variables from the split. Either an array, a hash, or even a linked list result could be more appropriate, depending on what you want your "neat data structure" loaded from non-reliable input to do.
    the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H
