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.

[LanX]: yep heard the same origin story
[Your Mother]: I like it. I tottered on going into hucksterism because I feel like the world deserves it.
[LanX]: he ... we have a movement here called Anti-Germans based on this
[Corion]: Your Mother: I think that's because (in the west) the Nazi-Germans are recognized as universally evil. Of course, you could do some number games to calculate other measures of evil than "historic losers of second world war" to come up with other evils:)
[Corion]: I've heard "Troll" described as the new Punk, and in a way, it can be as destructive as living the Punk lifestyle, and you don't have to sit out in the cold...
[LanX]: Anti-Germans
[LanX]: Socrates was a Troll
[Your Mother]: It's very, very dangerous... Thinking that a group is intrinsically evil... buries the fact that all humans can be so deep that it starts to become likely they will be.
[Your Mother]: LanX++
[Corion]: (also the "troll for trolls sake" could seen be much like the "punk for punks beer")
