Hi Sam, thanks for the information. Just picked up Perl as a hobby and
as such, still a newbie to the whole realm. One comment, you really
don't have to reply to me in a tone that suggests I'm dumb or an
idiot. I did indeed look at the website but couldn't/didn't find what
I was looking for.
I do notice, in general, that the regulars on this NG really don't
have too much patience for newbies. Surely Perl is not only for the
elite. I could announce in each and every post that I am a newbie, but
I have observed that this usually puts a bullseye on the back of one's
post. I don't remark on this observation because I need sympathy - I
am thick skinned - but this group is hard core. What brings about
such a superiority complex? Are all programmers this way? I would
think that those in the "know" would want more people to enjoy the
nuances of Perl.
Anyhow, back to semi-lurker mode.
Thanks again for the information.
