    Modern Perl for a raw beginner? y'ok,

    PBP I'd recommend for after they make it through the basics. So, yeah.

      Modern Perl for a raw beginner?

      Modern Perl: the book works best for people who've programmed something before. Someone who's never used a text editor and run "Hello, world!" before will struggle at the start.

[ambrus]: Corion: what I don't understand is, if you make a one-shot AnyEvent timer with short timeout, does this code guarantee that the Prima timer can't queue two timeout events before invoking any of them?
[ambrus]: Because that could break AnyEvent code, which is why I added a guard.
[ambrus]: (It might be easier to use the callback scalar as a guard, as in $c and &$c(); $c = ();)
[Corion]: ambrus: Hurr - yes, that might happen, as Prima will queue lots of stuff (Well, Windows will)
[Corion]: But I'm really amazed that it just took this little code (plus the idle handler I have in mind and something else dk suggested)
