Excellent. Got it to work! I'm just curious about one thing. In order to use the user input prompt to assign the variable, I had to change it to:

chomp($position = <>);

Why do you have to add chomp in order to get the user input to work normally? It looks like it adds a new line after a user input's data for some reason if you just do $position = <>;

I love it when a program comes together - jdhannibal

    It does not add it, the user does: he/she ends his/her input with a newline.
