How does Kwiki do configuration?
How does So-And-So debug his code?
If they do something better
then I learn, if our designs converged I get a
Another thing I've tried to do, but not really succeeded,
is to think about the limitations of the way I use Perl.
After looking at Prototyped OO I found cases where I was
badly half-implementing it. Likewise with AOP.
Then the Apocalpses came out. I read along as Larry
solved the problems I couldn't even see I had (and Perl had).
This changing of perspective has teaches me most but
it's difficult to turn into a process. Therefore,
it's probably difficult to teach. I just continue to
bang my head against things I don't understand until
one or the other cracks. Good luck finding an alternative.
