in thread Whats the average time taken to learn Perl?

"Seems to me there are a lot of Monks out there concerned about the learning process.."

Yes, indeed. I'm always surprised again about this - but there are some very old rules about learning:

  1. From easy to complicated
  2. From slow to fast
  3. Practice every day
  4. Have patience
  5. Try to have a new insight every day
  6. Start again from step one

And i think there are just three levels to do anything:

  1. Do it - it's OK when it works
  2. Do it better - perhaps it is faster or something else
  3. Do it nice - perhaps it matches a more sophisticated criteria

Best regards, Karl
