Or do what I do and implement perlish things in VB and get the job done natively.
Added You'd think people would glark from context that perl is my preferred language. Its just not what I get to use at work so I spend some time creating support perlisms in VB and get my job done easier and faster. And its not that I don't know how the VB-way would have me do it — I just happen to know that by using some sprinklings of perl-thought the resultant code will be clearer and not the ugly gobs it'd be otherwise. Sheesh. Its not as if I actually said "go use VB" or anything.
