Re: Forgetting Syntax, Forgetting logic, Heck, Should I even try keep learning Perl??

in reply to Forgetting Syntax, Forgetting logic, Heck, Should I even try keep learning Perl??

One more advice from someone with used-to-have-excellent-memory: remember how to find good examples:

perldoc perl

and the derivatives that are listed there: perldoc perlre, perldoc perlcheat, perldoc perldsc, etc.

If you use that often enough you'll remember where examples are that you cannot remember.

(Personally, I also keep files with the most often needed/forgotten examples, one for each language: bash, perl, sql, etc. Then, make sure they are accessible; now and then mail them to yourself, for instance).

Yeah, it's rough to get older... (and I can tell you it gets worse, not better ;-))

But it's also true that using your brain keeps it in better shape, and surely learning perl qualifies.

[Corion]: Meh... Github (understandably) doesn't allow files larger than 100MB, but my rebase of an older repo (from Github) includes such a file and now I can't push my changes there
[Corion]: Maybe that is the push I need to finally try out Gitprep ;)
[Corion]: On the upside, I should finally improve Image::CCV to also do ImageNet classification using their pretrained parameters
[Lady_Aleena]: Hello Corion.
[Corion]: Hi Lady_Aleena!
