( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks for the comment. I've made a few updates to the original node to see if I can do a better job of emphasizing your point. It's my goal to further revise it based on comments here.

My whole reason for going through re-writing the split and join section of the tutorial was just that I felt the existing section didn't provide enough depth and examples to give a true feel of the power, flexibility, and usefulness of split and join. Rather than to re-invent the tutorial, I just hoped to tighten the spokes of the existing wheel. It is ok if this just spurrs a discussion that might lead to an improvement here and there. Split/Join seemed like a good place to start.

If you (or anyone else) have suggestions on how it could be further improved I'd like to hear. Maybe in the end someone will read it and come away with a better feel for how to use split because of our efforts.

In keeping with Perlmonks tradition, I'll list the updates made to the node, and who helped make them possible. Rather than clutter up the cohesiveness of the node, the update and credit list will appear at the bottom, documenting what input led to assorted improvements.
