in reply to perl exercises for newbies

Exercises? There are a multitude of things to do. The great thing about perl is in its exploration. Think of something and just do it!

Take a look at the Tutorials They can give you ideas on what to play.

You can also take a look at the Code Catacombs. People submit stuff for people to use. See if you can convert something and or improve it

It may sound like a great deal but that's how I learned. Each new attempt always teaches me something.

But if you need real newbie stuff. I would suggest playing around with arrays, hashing, and map. Try stuff like reversing, deleting, add and sorting. If you are going to do Web stuff, try the CGI. Again Tutorials will help you....

After you think you are good, try some obfuscation!

Just some ideas and welcome to the fold

[erix]: yeah. it's been some time since I last built a (linux) kernel but perl takes less than 30s and postgresql less than 2 minutes minutes :)
[talexb]: Yep .. came across SuSE 6.2 in my storage locker recently. How old is that.
[erix]: 2001 :)
[erix]: (I have the wp pages open :))
[talexb]: 2001 sounds about right .. got myself a separate box just to run Linux on. Seriously clueless.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
