in reply to store the output of the request to the db - instead of printing

Friends have told me - this is the right time to jump into the new language - into Perl...

These friends of yours are liars. Trying to learn a language by reading through existing coded modules must be like trying to learn physics by dropping a hammer on your foot repeatedly. It is idiocy. In order to understand a language you need, minimally, to grasp:

  • Syntax
  • Data Structures
  • Logical and Control Structures/Concepts/Constructs
  • Etc. Etc. Etc.

Buy a book on Perl or read one of the free ones online (use Google). Read the pod documents associated with the language and when you want to know what a specific language feature does use this:perl -f sprintf for instance.

    Liars? I personally learned more and much faster from the Cookbook that I did from the Lama. Some of the syntax and structure stuff is just noise until you see it in practice. Dropping different hammers from different heights on your foot would be a pretty solid way to internalize F = ma. :P Hell, if you did two at a time you’d even independently discover the law of falling bodies.

      hello - well this is a superb statement - i love it!!!

      that is a very goood idea. i love this idea! It is bout informal learning and i think that a cookbook is much much more effective than the lama
