in thread How I Created a Catalan-English Dictionary from a Spanish-English Dictionary Using Only String::Approx and Approximately 500 grams of Scots Tablet

You could try making it; it's really easy. Or get someone local to feel sorry for you, point them to the recipe, and they can make it -- I've actually had that happen for homesick Scots expats.

I've toyed with adding a couple of shots of espresso to the mix for the ultimate sugar/fat/caffeine hit, but that would be overkill. Since I don't eat chocolate, all pleas for me to make chocolate coated tablet have been ignored.

If the Perl programming doesn't work out, I could always start up in confectionery. The dictionary staff in two continents are hooked, and I have several addicts in Toronto.pm...

(did I say I was the person who got Perl into the Collins English Dictionary?)

    Greetings;

    You could try making it; it's really easy.
    I think you must have some kind of "EZ-Tablet" recipe, because I've tried making my grandmothers Tablet and all I can get is toffee :P

    JP,

      You are lucky you got toffee. My first attempt looked like the contents of a cat box. I'm afraid I can't magic you up a Scots::Tablet module, but the recipe I posted has been tried and approved by numpties the world over.
