( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all, I'm new to Perl and programming in general. I know how to make a database, use modules, regex, all the basics. But now I want to go a bit beyond:) I have downloaded the xaudio SDK, which says that I can use Perl to make an MP3 encoder/player. But as I was looking through the docs I realized I was in way over my head. This doesn't look like friendly Perl hehe. Can anyone point me to a book (I have the cookbook and learning and programming, all great) or web site that tells me how to dig in to some harder stuff, but doesn't blow me out of the water right off the bat? Or even if you want to tell me that Perl is not right for this type of thing. Anything that will get me over this hurdle. I love writting my little system maintainence programs but would love to do something "big". Thanks all for any input:) Miker

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.
