if you haven't already, read Effective Perl Programming by Joseph Hall (and Randal Schwartz to a greater or lesser extent depending on who you ask :>). i read it as one of my earliest Perl books after coming from a background in other languages (...), and found it to be an invaluable resource.

it will allow you to jump ahead of the game, be in two places at once, read minds, etc., etc., and all the other wonderful things that the world of Perl makes possible.

understanding the details and implications of the examples given in that book will make obvious and clearly coherent many of the Perl idioms that would otherwise come to be understood only with extensive amounts of time, trial, and error (especially the latter for some of us).

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.
