@rocks has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey Perlmonks,

I need your help. Lately BrowserUK, Zaxo, and tye have been telling me about a command structure called splice. I have an older friend who programs for a living and says he knows a lot about Perl. I asked him about splice and he said he had no clue what that was.

I was just wondering if any monk would please be kind enough to write a little explanation of spice or to /msg me about it. :-) Thank you.
