Yes, thanks for the additional explanation. That's what I like about this forum. Not only can I get help with an immediate problem, but often contributors such as yourself explain why it was a problem in the first place. Anybody can cut, paste and tweak, but having someone explain some of PERL's less obvious workings helps everyone who reads the post become a better programmer.
