West Side Story
The award-winning adaptation of the classic romantic tragedy
"Romeo and Juliet". The feuding families become two warring
New York City gangs, the white Jets led by Riff and the Latino
Sharks, led by Bernardo. Their hatred escalates to a point
where neither can coexist with any form of understanding. But
when Riff's best friend (and former Jet) Tony and Bernardo's
younger sister Maria meet at a dance, no one can do anything
to stop their love. Maria and Tony begin meeting in secret,
planning to run away. Then the Sharks and Jets plan a rumble
under the highway--whoever wins gains control of the streets.
Maria sends Tony to stop it, hoping it can end the violence.
It goes terribly wrong, and before the lovers know what's
happened, tragedy strikes and doesn't stop until the
climactic and heartbreaking ending.

Hi Toby.

I wrote a blog post about the __DATA__ token yesterday and this is an interesting related example (also List::*Util* use). I always use those kind of scripts at work to treat data for tasks colleagues who don't know how to program ask me about and I wish we could take some hours as a training so their life could be improved by reducing the use of painful Excel experiments.
