in thread Best Perl Books of All Time

Brother, Your advice is well taken . Though my son is brilliant programmer in c and c++ and damn good in embedding and his perl knowledge is limited because of speed issue . I am also a engineer involved with town planning and developing certain new cities but programming when challenged by my son though in a very polite mode was too tough. Six months back I tried c and when I reached pointers I crashed my computer three times and then one of my friend advised to learn perl and after studying about 5 books in perl I challenged my son that can you start perl in interactive mode in windows and he could not reply and i have done in a single linar

    Clearly you need to stop asking your son for programming advice. C/C++ is not a good place to start, and yes, you can get an interactive prompt with Perl. (there's more to it than a simple command-line option, but still, it can be done.)

    Instead, ask here. We know far more about Perl than your son, and can give you the best answers. Don't give up!

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      mY MAIN questions is any perl monk can do perl in inractive mode like they do it in python or ruby
