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

Ok..trolling through my old journal mags i found a C replacement for nested for statements. So being a masochist i decided to port it to perl ... I'm getting wierd errors please take a look and see what's causing my camel to kick and spit...the original and the port are at:

My yahoo briefcase

if people can't access them i'll follow up with a full the port i added lotsa comments as i went so to keep me mindful of what i shoulda been doing...(pointer arithmetic & references & dereferences ... OH MY!)

especially the pointer arithmetic...i KNEW there was a reason i always felt pointer arithmetic was EVIL EVIL EVIL!

playing with your pointer like that can make you go blind (or at least crazy ;] )
