Thanks for the advice. I would like to become a "Jack-of-all-trades, Master-of-none, when it comes to Perl. In this case, do you think Intermediate Perl is my next step, or do you think otherwise?

    I think your next step should be some actual programming, so you get some mileage on your odometer.

    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      I do a lot of extremely simple programs and just build on them. I have no one in my household or any friends that have the time that want to look at them so I don't know how good they are (but they work).

        That is a first step!

        Only then comes: "Is it easy to maintain", "is it efficient" and "is it elegant".

        After a while you will recognize that really these four matters are aspects of the same and you will then write programs that show all aspects all the time together.
