( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have used a large variety of resources to learn perl. This includes books, websites, code snooping etc. I have no formal training, I am taking the same approach I first took with html and with mIRC script. Trial and error. My first program I used strict..

I had no idea how I would shame myself by not using it and other such things here. Quite honestly I was pleased to get this little program to work, I didn't concentrate on perfect code. Well that is one of the reasons I posted it here. So far I have been given very broad examples of what I have done wrong and I have started looking up these references on

Does anyone have any more accute examples for this particular piece of code? Where/how does it need to be improved. I am definately here to learn more about perl, I can see this should not have been posted as a Craft as evidently that is where the guru Monks post their perfectly written code. I apologise for this.
