in reply to Forgetting Syntax, Forgetting logic, Heck, Should I even try keep learning Perl??

I started learning Perl, wxPerl, Ubuntu, and Arduino at age 58. Having had a 25+ year career in software development certainly helps with the basic CS concepts and debugging techniques.

I prefer reading documentation on paper, so I am slowly building a personal library of the Perl "animal" books. "Mastering Regular Expressions" has to come next.

I suggest reading all of the Perl Monks posts you can find time for. I try to read them all every day. I won't remember exactly how some problem was solved, but I will remember it can be solved and how to look it up.

Keep at it! Good luck.

There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...
