in thread html/file security cgi [revisited]

I have used a large variety of resources to learn perl. This includes books, websites, code snooping etc.

The problem is that like just about everything else, 90% of Perl books and Perl tutorial websites are rubbish. One problem that I'm very interested in is how we in the Perl community steer potential Perl converts to all the good information before they find all of the rubbish.

You've obviously found Perlmonks, which is a good start. I'd also recommend that you look at perl.com and use.perl; on a regular basis.

As far as books go. The wisdom of the Perl community is gathered in perlfaq2. Try typing perldoc -q book at you command line.

[james28909]: it would be to much work just to get around renaming three subs lol
[james28909]: but you could put it all in one sub and return the same data type that was inputted. i could write a small example maybe
[Lady_Aleena]: Their uses are also vastly different.
[Lady_Aleena]: The first two make hashes and arrays from a file, the third returns data from a pre-existing hash.
[Lady_Aleena]: Well, HoH and AoH respectively.
