FWIW, I still call myself an apprentice, as I still don't feel I've truly mastered Perl.

Minor point of posting style...

When specifying links to other nodes, use the PM-link tag: [id://11123691|first post]

Here, you used the anchor element (<a>): <a href=”>first post</a>

This causes problems for folks using one of the other domains the site is associated with (e.g.,, etc).

To learn more, see How do I link to a node on this site by number? and PerlMonks FAQ

Not a huge deal, but one that really helps keep the cookies straight.

    My bad! Sorry about that! I will use the PM version of the link tag going forward. Thanks for pointing that out. (I didn’t realize there was a dot com version of PerlMonks either!)

      You can also use it going backward, i.e. you can fix the existing posts. Just click on the Edit link.
      map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
