    Very good, but you miss "has" to translate Lost a planet master obi-wan has which leaves obi-wan lowercase ;) Also there is a t missing from $pivot and a weird char at the end of sentenceX)) in $sentence = ucfirst(lc($sentence));
      It seems to be the cut and paste action I used that messed it up. I got the perl rewritten in JavaScript if anyone's interested
        Hey, very interesting script. May I get the javascript version of this Thanks Kiro
        Could I get the JAVASCRIPT for that, If at all possible? :) Thanks.
