Maybe you're not the most Perl-knowledgable Monk in the Monastary, but I'd certainly say that you've achieved a high level of self-awareness and reflection. I mean, maybe it isn't your goal, exactly, but I think that you're on the threshhold of an understanding that transcends understanding the programming language (although, to be fair, anything that seems to transcend an understanding of Perl is really just adding depth to your understanding of Perl.): You've made some progress in understanding yourself and your context in a system. Maybe you haven't attained clarity, but you've really recognized its existence.

Point being:

  • There is understanding more important than understanding perl
  • Understanding which at first seems to just be about life, and have nothing to do with Perl, is really about both.

    I'm serious, here. Am I making sense, or just sounding creepy?

    The Autonomic Pilot; it's FunkyTown, babe.
