die "Nope : $!\n";
Has always been a favourite of mine. I guess it makes me feel like Perl is a language that is easy to get hooked on, but could take a lifetime to master...
Writing a program and getting it to work exactly how you meant it to
is one of the best feelings around, one especially magnified to a newbie programmer. Spending a few hours plugging away at something, running it and getting
Nope : No such file or directory
is a tactful way of letting me know that Perl is the boss, and I am the student, as always.
