in reply to Efficient programming

Ah, grasshopper, you seek knowledge, but the time is not yet right to reveal this to you. First, you must learn patience!

Meditate upon this now..

Update: I should explain this comment: I believe all programmers seek to write the most optimal code, it is utopia! But it is a quest that takes us our natural lives and enlightenment comes with study and practice. The question being asked, i.e. how to do this in Perl, can be partially answered by learning any computer language (as others have mentioned below about gaining wisdom of algorithms and such). And specific understanding of efficiency in Perl can be gained by studying and utilising Perl itself - there are many such routes, including reading the Camel book, reading much of PerlMonks, and studying the source code of Perl itself!

And so patience is required because the road is long.. take some initial steps and read as much as you can.

[thezip]: It fails in the "formatted 2-digit numeric" tests
[thezip]: Okay Corion, that's what I wanted to hear. Thanks!
[Corion]: Oh, a test failure... Just force-install it then? --force and potentially --notest to skip the tests alltogether ?
[ambrus]: thezip: is Activestate Perl usable for your scenario instead?
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, --notest is good, not sure I would do --force.
[thezip]: It fails 2/10 tests in that group. What are the ramifications if I force it? What should I look for for?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
[1nickt]: Quick survey: has anyone used or even heard of autobox?
