in reply to How do I become a good programmer?

I'd recommend Steve McConnell's Code Complete. While merlyn's Learning Perl got me started in programming, Code Complete turned me from a beginning programmer into a professional (of sorts), even though it generally deals with languages I rarely use. The Pragmatic Programmer is another excellent book... but you've already got that. :)

Also, I've rarely had to come up with algorithms on my own, since there are such nice algorithm books out there.

    kevin, were u referring to bentley's programming pearls or the o'reilly's perl book(programming perl)?

      It's the Bentley book.

      I used the O'Reilly book to learn Perl though.
