: Heya Folks,
: Ash's program was:
: print OUTF
: print OUTF "\n\n";
: Not to sound too new (though I am), but what's OUTF do?
OUTF is a file handle.
: Does it write to a file?
print writes to the file OUTF refers to.
: Also, what are all the vertical lines "|" for?
: They look like pipes in Unix, but I don't think that's what they are...
Ash is storing the information in the hash to a file and separating
each vluse with a |. Later the hash can be retrieveved using a split
that searches for |. (split /\|/ ). This is commonly referred to as pipe
