    Can you explain that a bit for those less enlightened monks?

    I'm a bit baffled. I don't see what the problem is.

    ($_='jjjuuusssttt annootthheer pppeeerrrlll haaaccckkeer')=~y/a-z//s;print;

      The problem is: MeowChow created a normal Array and a normal Hash:

      @l = 0..10; %h = (a => 1, b => 2);

      But then read from them as if they were a reference to an array and a reference to a hash:

      print @l->[4]; # prints 4 print %h->{b}; # prints 2

      This would be the normal way to access the array and the hash:

      print $l[4]; # prints 4 print $h{b}; # prints 2

        Thank you for clearing that up.
