LOL.  I know I made a rude comment about Perl, but I _have_ been forced to
use it in the last couple of weeks, and it really isn't _quite_ as bad as I
implied :-)  Of course, it's much easier now that we have Google.  Last
time I tried, I could never find a reference for what I wanted when I
needed it.  Last week I googled "perl iterate associative array" and got
exactly the code I wanted on the first hit (OK, it helped to know that what
I wanted to do was iterate over an associative array).
