Wow. I think this is a truly horrible idea.

I did exactly this as a perl newbie, an idea of my own, and looking at the code in CPAN modules simply made my head hurt. If you don't already have -lots- of experience is some programming langage, then looking at good CPAN code is most likely to confuse you.

Hell, I've written major web-based applications for paying clients and some of the code in some modules still throws me for a loop

The best way to learn is to start small, learn the fundammentals and build up. When you're ready you'll know it, then you can tear apart heavy duty modules and figure out what makes them tick

If you want to learn to build an engine, you don't start by taking apart the nearest helecoptor motor. You start with that little one that powers your remote control airplane.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
