in reply to Information (or knowing where to find it) is key

Maybe it's better to familiarize oneself with the documentation by reading through it "diagonally". Just enough to know which document contains what. It takes some time, but I find it's worth the investment.

Update: Incidently, reading through the docs you'll probably find a number of features you didn't know about, an added bonus ;)

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

    I'll second the suggestion to read the docs. I start working my way through the camel book every once in a while and always manage to pick up something I missed before.

    I've always tried to understand the concepts when learning something new. You can always look up the details.

    90% of every Perl application is already written.

[Your Mother]: The US government does not attract talent, but grafters and liars and it has been that way for the better part of a century. FEW exceptions.
[erix]: you think it only /looks/ worse this time?
[Your Mother]: HR Clinton was literally threatening Russia. She would have been MUCH more likely to start real trouble.
[Your Mother]: I think there is less decorum this time.
[Your Mother]: We’ve had rapists and thieves and unqualified government. They just had decorum.
[erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
