in reply to Perl in Fall

Leaves equals sixty
Leaves decrement until
Leaves equal zero
Update: The last line had six syllables (equal to). That is what I was pointing out. The <AnalAlert>equality comparison operator (==) </AnalAlert> has always been pronounced 'equal to' by me and those that I have encounted. Mr. Muskrat told me that I should remove it, so I first went to <Anal Alert> a dictionary</AnalAlert> and looked it up. After reading the definition, I found that I can now say either 'equal' or 'equal to' when speaking of the <AnalAlert>equality comparison operator (==) </AnalAlert>

    I see that as I expected my poem has a different number of syllables than it did in my head. :p I'm afraid it comes from not having any other perl coders to talk (out loud) to. For reference, here's how I pronounced the symbols while I was writing it:

    Leaves equals sixty.
    Leaves-minus-minus, until
    Leaves equals zero.
