in thread Counting In a Log File from Multiple Variables

I think about that all the time. *Smiles* When I started writing perl code, I made some mistakes with "" and '', so I started putting literals in '', special characters (like \t and \n) in "", and I pulled out all variables.

It's just one of those habits which has stuck around in my code since.
