Notes to self

  • Do not print Dumper when trying to display a script in a browser without using <pre> tags.
  • Do print Dumper when something goes wrong. The data structure is usually the problem.
  • If one changes a variable, check the whole script for that variable to make sure that the results will be as expected.
  • rename will not create directories, be sure to use mkdir in conjunction with rename if the files are also being moved to a new directory.

Notes from others

  • bart: LA it's often considered good practice to increment the variable in a continue block, to prevent running out of sync when using next.
  • Intrepid: btw, i wish i could explain to a lot of people i know, how efficacious Lady_Aleena's explained strategy can be (to use coding and thinking about coding to master a disquieted state of mind)
  • ambrus: In general, use magic only when normal solutions aren't enough.
  • GrandFather: each time through its loop while asks itself "Can I loop this time? Can I? Can I Can I? Please?" and if the answer is no (false statement) while gets grumpy and stops

Things I should get a grip on

  • objects
  • testing
  • SQL
  • version control
