( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Look into the Magic 8 Ball to find the answers you so need. This will work WAY better than brian's Guide to Solving Any Perl Problem for answering those tough debugging questions.

Perl Programmer: Why won't my code compile?
8 Ball: Yes, definately

You can't pay for that kind of help ;)

Props to Erudil's Camel Code whose code munging technique I used, good stuff
Instructions: copy to a file and execute as a normal perl script.
