jaggoraj has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I know this type of question must've appeared here lot of time, forgive me for asking it again.I'm a begineer in perl, ok I've been begineer for almost 2 years which means, I've begun number of times but didn't actually continued it(or didn't had focus).One reason is my current job doesn't require any scripting knowledge, so I'm not getting chance to work on any projects which requires perl so that I can develop(through that process learn) soemthing of my own. Other thing is I couldn't motivate myself (lagging sense of direction) in creating somehting on my own. By now you might wonder, "then why the heck you want to learn Perl?".OK, I want to learn perl because,I want to move out of my current job where I'm stuck for quite sometime and if I want to make a move then the only way out is to have a good scripting knowledge.If you want me to summarise, I need your guidance in how to practically start writing the code. I mean how to set goals and achieve them in learning scripting.I know for a many seasoned people here this kind of question might sound really trivial, but just give sec your answer might change my life.And for that I'll be really grateful to you.
Looking forward to your response.
