A few thoughts...

Reading and studying only helps to a point. I find fixing, adapting, and building things is a better way for me to expand skills. This improves both developer skills and Perl skills.

Developer skills involve computer science, work habits, planning techniques, and more. Much of this is learned more easily from others than from books.

Perl skills tend to involve specific tasks like file processing, hash manipulation, and data base interation. I find that even when one thinks they know a language well, there tends to always be something else to learn.

    [hippo]: Thanks for your input which has soothed my sanity (a little)
    [Corion]: Eily: Sure - if you force both things into stringy things, then you break that magic. But that would also mean that you changed the expression, as now $x = 0.00 will be true instead of false as it were before
    [Corion]: Ah no, at least in my feeble experiments that doesn't change the meaning
    [Corion]: We sell sanity in small packages ;)
    [Eily]: oh, boolean context uses the "" overload if no bool overload has been defined
    [Eily]: (I wondered if overloading bool was actually necessary)
