Writing a meditation titled Common Perl Pitfalls suggests otherwise.
Thanks for your informative notes.
I just wanted to comment on this particular statement. Please read the very first paragraph in the original node: I don't claim to be a Perl expert in any way. In fact, a lot of your replies are a bit over my head at the moment.
I was hoping to start a friendly exchange of common Perl experiences between novices and veterans (and I thought that's what you were doing, too). Was I wrong to come here? Is the Meditations section only for gurus, then?
