in reply to Idea Generation for New Programmer

Hey Tuna, I started with an emergency data munging application that drew me into file reading/munging/writing stuff. The next need was for an FTP dialog manager with a VERY brittle FTP server on the other end. (A custom app actually that looked like FTP.) My real interest is in data acquisition so I have a digital voltmeter and a weather station I want to build modules for, for display of data under Tk. Consider that you have expertise in one area and that you can be a code ambassador between your current knowledge and the Perl community. Novel and nifty client/server apps (think Napster) are always interesting. I am continuously amazed at the ingenuity of the Perl community and how easy it has become to do things that have been so hard. Consider that another asset of Perl dev is the ability to span disparate system types. That alone raises some ideas. Good luck, Tuna may you ride the Camel with style. - Diskcrash
