I am new to perl and Linux. I work on a Red Hat 9.2 Machine. When I started I used to work with "gedit"
. But when gedit crashed and refused to come up, I discovered "kate"

Snippets of code should be wrapped in
<code> tags not
<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
