in reply to Whats the average time taken to learn Perl?

Hi there
When I started learning Perl I already had a degree in computer science. I bought this great book and started reading it and doing the exercises.
I think it took a week for my Perl to be fairly decent, but it was nearly all I did during that week. Since then nearly 7 years have passed and my Perl is much better (still learning new things), but that first week really gave me a strong push
Hope this helps

Mr Guy

Thats silly...or a powerful mathematical equation, I can't choose which....
