How to start. || Ramblings of a confused mind.by jkva (Chaplain)
|on Jun 09, 2005 at 00:47 UTC||Need Help??|
I was reading in the Camel book today, about packages. Lately I have been forced, in a good way, by a project thought up at high command, to learn Object Oriented Programming in Perl.
So I went to read in the Camel book on the subject. Since then, I have been swung from left to right in the world of Perl. As one little tidbit of information would lead to another, I was propelled to basic knowledge and Perl peculiarities like a rubber ball in a closed compartiment.
Of course folks in the CB were more than helpful to answer my growing amount of new questions, thanks again - you know who you are - , but something began to burn in the back of my mind, insecurities as always - am I doing this right?
See, I could do this in two ways (afaik), which is more than one, as usual in the Perl world. These would be:
If I would start with what I know now, I would be faster on my way but would also be slowed down by constantly having to look things up. The good thing about this choice is that maybe there's not much more for me to learn, thus it would quicker than the other choice.
Or maybe I am seeing bears, wolves and lions where there are actually none.
At least I got this off my mind. Thanks for reading.
