Pretty easy. All you have to do is use a lookup hash table and the split() function.

Maybe it is time to start. You have been coming here (and at least one other forum) looking for Perl solutions for at least 18 months, you should be able to use a hash by now. When I took up Perl, it took me about 2 hours (actually, probably less) before I started to use hash tables.
