in reply to Newbie to PERL removing text from array

There's was this guy outside of my local Little Caesar's pizza that shook a can with some quarters in it and asked for change. I like pizza so I would see this guy there all the time. After a while I kind of got tired of giving this guy money -- I mean, he didn't seem to be bettering his life at all. Finally I said I wouldn't do it anymore. He seemed pretty miffed about it but, you know what -- he's no longer outside of the pizza joint. He's moved on.

What's the moral of the story? I think people who post requirements without code are like that guy with the can and Monks here are being foolish by writing code for them. I personally insist that people show me some work before I help them out. Maybe Perlmonks would be a better place without that rattling can noise. Just my two cents.
