in reply to What training do YOU need?

This sounds like salted ground when you say: advanced perl programmers who .. are afraid of globs, toying with references, multilevel datastructures. Especially if by globs you mean typeglobs.

It sounds like they might hire one Perl toolsmith/mentor type.

These are items that seem to come a bit slower to many programmers: tie, grep, map, BEGIN, .., ..., m, wantarray, scalar, and the special variables that likely want local and issues that go with all of these.

The core modules are worth more attention than CPAN's.

Things I'd like to know more about:

  • Filesystem organization of code for production & distribution.
  • Testing in the large.
  • Use of compile time constructs. Just curious.
  • The special vars and tokens.
  • Regexes.
  • The debugger. Just curious.
  • use fields, this seems in flux.
