Hanging around the monastry will learn you many more neat tricks. To name a few:
  1. use strict and warnigns and diagnostics or die
  2. lingual-like for/while/if/unless constructs, eg.
    print "I love perl ".$_++." times\n" while m/vroom/; print "Bwech" unless m/perl/ or not substr($^O, 'linux' );
  3. split (/tell chipmunk I did resist the temptation)
  4. eval
  5. .... and many others.
Mehopes you will enjoy the wonders of perl!

    Cool, thanks again.

    I guess it's obvious that I code in Perl like a 'C' Programmer.
    I'll definately pick up the traits of a Perl Programmer from hanging
    around here, something that some books just don't teach.

    I'm learning Perl from a 900 page book called "Mastering Perl 5",
    by Eric C. Herrmann. I'm about 2/3 through, it's okay but it can
    pretty dry at times. It teaches the methods of Kung-Fu, but not the
    art of Kung-Fu.

    The name of the book is misleading. You cannot be a "Master",
    without having style and grace.

    Now, let's see if I can Walk my Talk...
