in reply to Real Life Perl Exercises

Personally, I believe that you learn any language not by studying the books, but when you actually start using it for a job/task/lesson/whatever...
It's no use learning about hashes,for example, if you don't use them in a project... You will forget them in a couple of days. So, if you are not going to use Perl in your work or a lesson, or something else, what's the use of learning it?
If, on the other hand, you are going to apply it, trust me, you will learn it much better each time you want to complete a task...

    what's the use of learning it? Wow! I have learned a lot of things that I don't use everyday but can pull up when the time is needed. If I lived by this philosophy, I wouldn't learn anything.

    I'm interested in programming period. Perl is fun and I want to learn more about it. Maybe one day I will use it more frequently but I have to know what it is in order to know if I even want to use it daily.
