You're right of course, my code should have been:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w my $p = 'Terrence and Philip are sweet'; $p =~ s/e/1/g; print "$p";

which is a direct copy and paste, but still doesn't give the desired result, I see after re-reading. I'll have to think about that a little harder. Now I see why it wasn't as easy as I thought at first go.

    Also worth noting that for single character translations like this, tr/// is much more efficient than s///.
