90% of every Perl application has already been written.


  1. Find a process your company has that is inefficient.
  2. Whip up a solution in under 40 hours that saves the company significant resources by streamlining the process.
  3. Do #2 in your spare time.
  4. Demo the solution to upper management, emphasizing the cost/benefit ratio as well as the time-to-market.
  5. Be prepared to be called a liar.
  6. Have a bodyguard for a few days to make sure you don't get jumped by the other developers in the parking lot.
  7. Eventually, upper management will either see the light or you will find a better employer.

    • In general, if you think something isn't in Perl, try it out, because it usually is. :-)
    • "What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the sound of a wall that people have stopped banging their heads against?"

    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  8. Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  9. Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  10. Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  11. Please read these before you post! —
  12. Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  13. You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
  14. Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
  15. See Writeup Formatting Tips and other pages linked from there for more info.
