Interesting question.

Since I started tinkering with it in about 1997, I've been trying learn new stuff every chance I get. With the continuous flood of new goodies pouring into CPAN, I'm always learning new stuff. I also learn when I get a chance to go to http://yapcna.org -- last year's event at Madison, WI was another terrific opportunity to learn the latest cool stuff.

Perl 6 is being refined and updated as I write, so there's that to stay up to date on, though I don't have time myself to install it and tinker with it.

I replied 'hundreds' of hours, but it's probably more like 'thousands'.

[dazz]: Hi I have grabbed an image from an IP camera with Image::Grab. I then want to pass that image object to a subroutine where I do a read-only test on the image with Image:Magick.
[dazz]: How do I pass an image object to a subroutine and then apply a Image::Magick a read-only method to the image object???
[dazz]: Also, I want to use Image::Magick to annotate and composite (not in a sub). How do I take a Image::Grab object and apply Image::Magick write methods to it??
[dazz]: At present, I am saving the Image::Grab image to disk, then creating a new Image::Magick object that reads the disk file.
[dazz]: .
[choroba]: Discipulus Sounds interesting. Any pictures of the puppets or paintings?
