Oh boy ... I would've told him
ya know (if i
, there ain't no stopping me )
- Does he know what GLOBS are?
- Does he know how my/local are different?
- What are his feelings on until/unless?
- or the difference between && and and and || and or? (;D)
Is he an intern or something?
What did he do to get the job?
I suggest you make him read
perldata, perlref, perldoc -f ref,
and then perldsc perlreftut perllol
every day until he gets it.
Once you learn perldata/perlref, there is very little mystery left in complicated datastructures (i feel most anybody with half a brain , and half an hour, can learn all about perldata/perlref with the help of somebody who knows it all ).
perldata/perlref are as essential as perlsyn (and dare I say, perlre, even perlre is advanced any which way you look at it, but at least knowing how to employ m// and s/// are not).
If your dude knows all about arrays/hashes/scalars, point him to References quick reference and let's see if he don't learn it in half an hour.
