in reply to Perl cheat sheet

Hi Juerd-

Nice work! I often get slices and basic regexps wrong when I guess and try to wing it; I don't want to get off my ass and get the camel off the shelf or do a mental context-switch to read pod so it'll be nice to be able to just glance at the wall as I do when I forget something in vi.

I copynpasted this into Word, formatted it in Andale Mono 12, ran off a copy on my laserjet and taped it on the wall next to my vi cheat sheet.

I added the URL of this node and the date ("November 2002"); maybe you should too? My vi cheat sheet has been on the wall since 1998.

I guess most people who use this will want hard copy. I can make a pdf if you want to host it.. /msg me.

    The URL that is already there (http://juerd.nl/) will host a whole new website soon (ETA: one or two weeks), including the cheat sheet. What's the purpose of a date if it already has a version number?

    And you still don't know it by heart? :) My guess is that beginners will only use this Perl sheet for one, maybe two months.

    I think you are right about people wanting hard copy, but I also think that anyone capable of typing #!/usr/bin/perl knows how to make print a text file :) Feel free to host it yourself if you want. I disclaim both responsibility and copyright (regarding "Perl 5 Cheat Sheet v5"), but please don't remove my name and URL.
