in thread People who write perl, Perl and PERL
Nope never looked at it. Don't see why I'd waste time on that. FAQ's rarely have answers to complex questions like "How do I add this feature to my script without breaking everything else?" They're usually much more basic and useless. Best to just start writting code and see if it works.
I was giving a long script and told to add some functionality to it the deadline was a week away. That was my first intro to perl. About a year maybe two later, I finally saw the Camel book. I skimmed it, but didn't find anything that could be useful to the project I was working on at the time.
I'm not sure exactly when I found cpan, but it was shortly before I saw the Camel book. Most everything I ever needed was in CPAN. I found PM just a few years ago. With CPAN, google, and PM, the FAQ will be nothing but useless trivia. There is no need to learn more than what is necessary to accomplish your job.
