Hello again,

While i'm not a professional perl developer, but i bet yes; i saw them.

Then, have you seen my signature? ;=)

But look from another perspective: having or well using a module is a little price you pay, generally. If you use core modules, which every perl incarnation has ( ), the way is super plain: they are, for sure, better implemented than my or your code, they are tested a lot, they will remains stable during ages..

Normally a well desinged module push in just the code you want like in use List::Util qw(any); so you pay quite nothing.

CPAN is full, leterally, of useful modules too; here is preferable to choose carefully a well developped module, a famous and widely tested, or be able to understand what it is really doing: the risk to indroduce something unxepcted is present; with core modules is rare (by experience if i find something wrong with perl itself and it's core module i start looking for what i misunderstood about..).

Experimental features are by other hand to avoid unless playing with the language to learn.

I smiled the last time i was called Disci+ anyway; Discipulus is ancient latin word meaning pupil or student ;=)

PS: another good way to learn is creating an account on asking and observing questions from others and their replies


There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
