I can not for the life of me understand why people do not use strict and warnings. That's like turning up the stereo in your car so you don't here the engine grinding through lack of oil.
What do you mean there is something wrong with my car, its moving isn't it. Yes but only just and when will it blow up?
Don't get me wrong it isn't Perl I dislike. I come from a VB background a have found the use of regular expressions unbelievably powerfull and now use them in VB which is now availble by referencing the VBScript library.
Thanks for your Comments I'll stick at it and may yet be converted!
