Hm, and how do you know if you need this or, say, that particular thing to complete your task or not?

This does require you have a basic understanding of the language you're dealing with. Using Perl as an example, one should have at least read through Programming Perl or something similar to get a feel for the language and the tools it provides. Staying current on advancements is also important and is what makes The Monastery such a great place :).

but please please at least explore as many things as you can just not to miss an opportunity.

I agree. Don't waste your time learning certain features in excessive detail when you could be gaining a greater understanding of programming in general, or learning how other languages compare to your current favorite.

    [erix]: until good old Putin lobs a bomb on Berlin :)
    [Your Mother]: “I’m afraid of Americans…”
    [Your Mother]: “No one needs anyone / They don’t even just pretend…”
    [erix]: they've stuck nuclear missiles in Kaliningrad - they can just reach Berlin :)
    [LanX]: naaah! Putin wouldn't nuke all the Russians in Berlin
    [Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but he’s not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
    [erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
    [erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
