( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I understand exactly what you are saying, You wish to continue from Perl 101 to 102, and 110, and then 210, etc. Unfortunately, there aren't many win32 books out there, and I haven't read one of them (I probably should!). I actually learn by taking on projects that are much bigger than my knowledge base, and asking a lot of questions here at PM

Honestly, my code consists of 90% plain old Perl, and 10% lines dealing with win32. When I want to expand my Perl horizons, I don't look to win32; I look to Perl. Better looping or learning internal variables (I recently learned about $.) and such have helped much more than knowing exactly when to use GetUser vs. GetUserAttributes. If I know what I'm generally looking for, I can find the specifics in the docs.

But, I find that books are a hard to recommend, as we all have different styles of learning. I learned Perl from the SAMS Teach Yourself Perl in 21 days, which worked incredibly well for me. If I went by the reviews on this book, I would never have bought it. I would have spit on it and set it on fire. If I went by the reviews, I should've bought the camel book, which was not visually broken down for skimming, and didn't fit my learning style. All I can say is: grab a cup of joe, head to the bookstore, give them all a good read, and then buy them online.

Although, Merlyn wrote a win32 book that I have been meaning to pick up...

I wish I could be more helpful...

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.
