( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello, I am a novice Perl user but so taken with it I have decided to have it permanently inscribed upon my very living flesh. Just shows you what some people do for kicks. Anyway, what I was looking for is critique and even inspiration regarding the syntax and symbolism of my chosen inscription:

s/classes/masses/gi;

Short, simple, political. Maybe too much so. It's a big of a shout out to the Manic Street Preachers classic "The masses against the classes", and it will go underneath my hammer and sickle tat.

So, as a final plea, if there are any incredibly obvious syntax errors, or suggestions to enhance the symbolism or efficacy of the code, I would love to hear them. If the intended meaning is too obtuse, please tell me that as well. RESPOND, OH YE MASSES, RESPOND. BE NOT AFRAID. Now, please. Do tell me what you think.

Particularly, I wonder if there's some way not to have to repeat the "asses" portion of the code, if there's some way I didn't think of to search of that but tell the interpreter I want only the "cl" part replaced. I don't know, just an idea.
