What aspect strikes you as "messy"? (Not arguing, just curious as to which of the many ways -- including some not discussed on this list -- you might find less "messy"?) I'll certainly grant that Perl can be cryptic to someone who has not learned some of the notation, but (again) that's true of almost EVERY notation, especially those that are highly compact. -jn- P.S.: The sig block below was selected for this email by a random number generator.
