Nice response..

I was thinking something along the same lines, but closer to how the Llama introduced perl.. Something along the lines of

Here is how you do X in Y
Here is the same in vanilla Perl
Here is the same in chocolate Perl
Here is the same in a bananasplit with nuts, cherries, and hot fudge Perl

This way they can grasp the basic flow, then you show them slight improvements on the algorithm in question, then move to builts ins, and using $_ or assuming you are working on $_, etc..

Best of luck on your conversion process..

/* And the Creator, against his better judgement, wrote man.c */

    [GotToBTru]: I
    [GotToBTru]: ve been looking at a document we have been sending to a customer for years now
    [MidLifeXis]: We don't, at least in this case ;-)
    [GotToBTru]: and it includes a reference number that I didnt recognize
    [GotToBTru]: I had to dig into the code to find out where it came from .. and it makes no sense
    [GotToBTru]: so I emailed my contact asking if we could just stop sending it .. I'm afraid she is going to ask "what is that anyway?"
    [MidLifeXis]: heh.
    [MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b
