in reply to How 'n' why

you think you're at a disadvantage because you've 
got all these bad habbits?  

try and learn PERL when it's the only thing you know
i have first-year (university) C++, and FY: SmallTalk 
(now smalltalk is a language i LOVE <g> ) 

you'd be amazed at how many examples are written as:
" x in C++ is written as y in PERL"

aside from basic logic process, trivial knowledge 
of what an array and a dictionary are PERL is 
essentially the only language i know

i can't wait to learn what the heck a regexp (sp?) is
i can't wait to learn what a DLL is (apart from a 
file that crashes all the time)

GUI and graphics (GTK) are so mysterious to me that i 
get butterflies thinking about the day when i write 
one in PERL (or is that too much coffee?)

 ... that's why i'm asking so many silly questions 
here (read some of my writeups, you'll see)

i do hope that some of the answers and problems i work
through (with the help i find here) can help another

i find that these ultra-simple problems are completely
undocumented on the web ... it'll be great to have 
that for PERL one day

a knowledge base of everything from beginner
to advanced
