in reply to What is the best way to master perl

Write lots of it and use any spare time and breaks browsing sites like this one to see how other people approach problems.

I'm an IT contractor, and I do short term contracts in a number of different languages. The good side of this is that I have a wide ranging skillset, keeping me employed, the bad side is that I never really get to be a "guru" in any one particular area.

For Perl, I've found PerlMonks is a useful way of keeping my hand in, and also seeing that other people solve problems in a different way from the way I would do it introduces me to novel concepts and the flexibility of the language. A skill left unused atrophies, so sites like this one are a great way to stay fresh.

A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

    There's more than one way to do it, It depends on what problems you are trying to solve, probably.
