While those sites are nice (and somewhat informative -- abigail's page is especially good and shiny!), I think I'm still not grasping the thought process. It's like "try this, or try that", or "this does this and that does this". That's all well and good, but how did you decide to try this and try that?

"Why?" is my question, the "How" is usually less interesting to me... That is "Why was this approach chosen" rather than "How does this particular approach work". Perhaps the answer is evolutionary, and "why" is "because it works" and "because someone else tried this and I changed it", in which case it's not possible to approach this from my Software Design mentality and these things must instead be created out of a different thought process.

On the other hand, maybe my brain would just explode and I don't need to know :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
