in reply to What did you have to Unlearn

I didn't have any trouble with it, but I did notice a fundimental difference between Perl and C++. In C++ returning a ref/pointer to a local variable is a bad thing. In Perl, it is a useful idiom.

As for putting things with meaning inside quotes, I got that shock when I first learned C, and saw \n in the text. It was novel that something inside quotes was not sacred but manipulated.
