Don't worry about it - it's just another language! I'd just like to second the oft-repeated suggestion that you shouldn't write Perl in Java - from personal experience, you'll end up with very messy datastructures which can't be manipulated as easily as they can in Perl. That way lies frustration and hairpulling. Try and pick up the Java idioms, and to really embrace object-oriented programming: it'll make you a better Perl programmer.

I've found that using Google to search directly against the Java API is really good for finding exactly the right method to do something. You might have to try searching by what you want to get done, rather than the name you think the method might have - Java doesn't believe in TMTOWTDI! - and sometimes you'll have to roll your own.

All the best!

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
