Please RSVP!

We'll be having a meeting Thursday, November 2nd at 7:00PM. 
It will be held at Bowne, which is located at 1500 N. Central Avenue,
which is on the Southwest corner of Central and McDowell.  The parking
lot is gated, so just press the button on the intercom, and tell the
receptionist that you are there for the Perl meeting.  Park in the lot
that is straight ahead from the entrance on the South side of McDowell.
Park in any uncovered, non-reserved space.  Proceed to the main lobby,
which is on the Northeast side of the parking lot.

Scott Walters will be presenting an incremental backup program he
recently wrote.  Topics include:

-function prototyping tricks
-parsing command line arguments
-array slices to access stat, localtime etc data without lots of clutter
-chaining together map {}'s and join()'s and split()'s etc
-when Perl *needs* parens to disambiguate and minimalizing code you
 wish would just go away
-references/symbol table as a means to save typing
-SCSI tape drives
