in reply to Reading other people's modules and codes

How many programs, including exercises from those books you've read, have you written ?

Can you solve the same problem again in less time? What if you change the problem slightly?

Did you take notes? Organize/re-organize? Keep them in version control? ( how do you organize your notes?, Work practices: log books, notes files... , Twelve Views of Mark Jason Dominus Talk 6: How to Progress)

What are you trying to learn by reading other peoples code?

Here are similar quests (starting points and reading material, follow deep)

Also, visit perl.j and see his questions, like

That should keep you busy for the next 10 years :)

    ++ This was a great answer to the posted question. Very informative and helpful. I've often had the same problems, and I've made it a point to read as much code as I can get my eyes on while I'm here (on PM). These links are a great addition to that.

    Thanks for posting these links. As I'm still a beginner with Perl, I'm also trying to learn as much as I can, whether it's by reading books, writing code, or looking for various Perl related sites, the monastery included.

    I'm sure that these links will also help keep me occupied for the next 10 years. Thanks again for the post.
