in reply to How has Perl helped you?

There's more than one way to do it!

Perl (meaning the language, community and others) has taught me this. I feel we can apply this phrase to many other aspects of life other than Perl.

Due to my abilities in coding and understanding Perl, I gained enough confidence to quit my day job and do my own stuff. I really had to go through a lot of crap from family and friends when I did this. And seriously enough, my abilities in Perl was there among my top 5 reasons to go ahead with this spontaneous decision (yes, it was spontaneous!)

    Hi arc_of_descent,

    Sounds a lot like my situation :)

    That's the beauty of Perl, I guess. Knowing just what you need to know does give you the confidence to do things. Well I suppose it's a lot to do with it's being like language. After a while you find that you can literally conjure up code in your head.
