That is sad, those previous paragraphs really aren't big, and there is no magic involved, merely the basics (addition/subtraction). If I were you I would read Perl documentation documentation, Searching Perl Documentation, How to Read Perldocs, all part of Tutorials sections Understanding and Using PerlMonks, Getting Started with Perl, http://perldoc.perl.org/index-functions-by-cat.html#Functions-for-SCALARs-or-strings
