( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I find IRC and Perlmonks to be a great help to me. I have learned more here than about perl programming than i did in any book. Mostly because I get to see many approaches to problems. Most books list a problem and a solution and you are left to assume that is the only way. I have yet to ask a question here, because everytime i log in with a question in mind I do a search and find lots of great answers already here. THe fact that i sit here browsing through the questions others ask help me to be a better porgrammer. It gives me a chance to to eximine problems that i ma not facing yet and figure out solutions which keeps my skills sharp. More than once I have learned something about perl while trying to answer a question and then been able to turn it around and apply the knowledge to a problem I am working on.I dont learn well from just reading a book. I need to see things in action. The more problems i try to solve the better i get at solving problems
As for the RTFM vs FAQ I see a lot of that here uauslly with links to past nodes ect. Its cool that it can be done in a nice way.
