( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I learned Java way back in the day in my first cs 101 class. I'll admit I found it quite overwhelming. I wouldn't mind starting with perl and then having a 'step-up' in strictness later when I went to c/c++. I like the gentle sloping learning curve much better ^_^. In responce to above about wishing books geared towards learning programming through perl I've got something not quite so good. As an aside to one of my learning process projects at school I've developed an admittedly short tutorial on learning programming through perl. It should be up on my site in a couple of weeks. Happy Coding! ~Adam
