in thread Where and how to start learning Perl

For learning Perl the TMTOWTDI paradigm of Perl applies:
there's more than one way to do it.


#So how come theres only one way to do comments?
hmmm...

    webmasta,
    To my knowledge there are quite a few ways to do comments.
  • # comment goes here
  • POD comments documenting your code
  • __END__ comments follow
  • Acme::Comment

    I have even seen some people use here docs for comments, though it really is code. I am sure creative monks have found even more.

    Cheers - L~R

    use strict; my $TMTOWTDI = "There IS more than one way to do it"; my $MeaningfulVariableName = "Is another way"; $MeaningfulVariableName =0, "And if you get creative, even more"; *SomeOtherWayToSayIt = *MeaningfulVariableName ; SomeSubroutine($MeaningfulVariableName , "Extra arg used as a comment +");
    I'm sure there are other creative ways to do it - I'm not recommending any of this - it's just that this node invited a challenge.
