    I considered myself as a Junk; Until here, I met a Monk; I don't have time for you,I said to a hot girl; Because now, I am in love with Perl. -Harihar Pai

    Is it Perl that i like, with the monks are her friends,
    Or is it the monks, who use Perl to their ends?

Relief at last...

    There I sat, my output muddled.
    My Perl was lame, and I, befuddled.

    My custom sort was sorting not
    as it should have, the little snot.

    A newline curse, my csv.
    That last blank line was taunting me

    with warnings, copious and crass.
    Uninitialized, MY A$$ !!!

    Then Context reared its ugly head
    to keep me from my nice warm bed.

    Those Operators laughed, connived,
    while in my skull the neurons writhed.

    A last resort, ere I did slip
    into derangement's frightful grip,

    I logged in here, and "HELP", did say.
    The Monks rode in to save the day !

    Dyslexics Untie !!!

    Happy Monkday!!
    You’ve been here 1 thrilling year.

    Is it really a whole year since I joined the Monastery? I’m so glad I did, and so very grateful to all the monks whose enthusiasm and dedication make PerlMonks the special place it is.

    So this seems like a good opportunity to post a rather long poem I wrote to meet the challenge of finding rhymes for all the monastic levels, from Initiate to Pope.

    Enjoy! :-)

    My first attempt at a Perl Poem :)
    Inspired by a movie I just saw and a book I read many times
    original Poem:
    The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say. ---Bilbo Baggins
    And my very humble attempt:
    use EagerFeat; use constant{ OnAndOn =>1, TRUE =>1, }; while ($Road == OnAndOn){ if ($can){ $follow = TRUE; } elsif (join(':', $Road,$larger_way)){ meet($errands, $paths); last; } } $wither_then? cannot():say();

    Long time using big, slow, strongly-typed Java, subject to impenetrable containers - too many bloated layers of software slapped too quickly around Open Source by multinational companies run by too many layers of management, highly paid executives who listen to the day traders that own the stock today, and fire the coders who understand the product, for a more profitable quarter now and pain later, coders who bitterly give up software careers to teach Math or sell flutes. Really. Perl was always my scripting language of choice. Finally...again...those who know answers are encouraged to share them, and lastingly enjoy the results of their labors, and not try to forget. What a difference.

    Being clumsy on basic coding jobs,

    0 1 0 perfection needs precision,
    For the monks perls
    Must only be cast in wisdom

    Boss man doesn't code. Likes to read over shoulders. Can't read Perl... Too dumb. "Perl is ugly, rough, unreadable!" Quoth Boss man: "Do it in Logo." Did it in Logo. Problem not solved, but now Boss finally groks code.
