in reply to Ruby Before Perl? Nah.

OOPs and Infrastructure

Here I see a very clear benefit to Ruby. No doubt this speaks more to my abilities with the language, but I learned Object Oriented programming with Java, and moving into that particular area in Perl was cumbersome.

You might want to take a look at Moose it helps take the pain out of Perl OO.

    I see that you have a number of Cookbook examples in the docs. However, I tend to prefer a tutorial. I don't see any Moose::Tutorial (hm - is that the name that would be used for it?). Are there any tutorials you recommend?

      Take a look at http://www.iinteractive.com/moose/ in the "articles" section are two nice Linux Mag articles that merlyn wrote, and an interesting comparison of Moose to Ruby by Barry Walsh. You might also want to look in the "presentation" section as well, some of the talks are kind of tutorial-ish. And if you are going to YAPC::NA this year in Chicago I will be giving a tutorial on Moose there this year. And lastly, if you are on IRC, feel free to stop by #moose on irc.perl.org the community there is pretty helpful.
