in reply to Where and how to start learning Perl

Excellent list, congratulations!

I could have missed them, but it seems a few nice sites aren't mentioned you might want to include:

  • somewhere, a lot of interesting articles can be found there, as well as a nice tip of the day.
  • Also is a good news site on Perl, although the most important stuff gets mentioned on PerlMonks as well.

I didn't check, but if no similar resource is available this would be a nice entry for the tutorial section or the FAQs.

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

    For learning Perl the TMTOWTDI paradigm of Perl applies:
    there's more than one way to do it.

    #So how come theres only one way to do comments?

      To my knowledge there are quite a few ways to do comments.
    • # comment goes here
    • POD comments documenting your code
    • __END__ comments follow
    • Acme::Comment

      I have even seen some people use here docs for comments, though it really is code. I am sure creative monks have found even more.

      Cheers - L~R

      use strict; my $TMTOWTDI = "There IS more than one way to do it"; my $MeaningfulVariableName = "Is another way"; $MeaningfulVariableName =0, "And if you get creative, even more"; *SomeOtherWayToSayIt = *MeaningfulVariableName ; SomeSubroutine($MeaningfulVariableName , "Extra arg used as a comment +");
      I'm sure there are other creative ways to do it - I'm not recommending any of this - it's just that this node invited a challenge.
