I'd always assumed so. I've regularly cited Perl Best Practices (pdf) ... as I did only last month, while issuing dazz a yellow card for repeated whinging about Perl's unfortunate Switch statement. If that's not fair use, I apologize ... though I certainly don't relish having to edit all my old nodes. :)

I suppose Perlish alternatives to a Switch statement is yet another candidate topic for your course.

    IIRC does Python have no switch statement so we are kind of "safe" here ... ;-)
