One way to get exposure to a good range of problems at all levels is to hang out here. For questions that look like something that you may be able to handle, have a go. Not with providing an answer here as to immediate goal, but just as a exercise in solving problems and writing solutions to those problems. If you want your answer "marked", post it as an answer, perhaps with a caveat depending on your comfort level. Even if you don't post an answer, you can at least see what other people have posted and compare your approach to theirs.

Perl has a lot of power hidden away in the corners, but it is generally a fairly forgiving language. If you want to post code here and have it critiqued, go for it. Questions go here (SOPW). Requests for comments might better go in the Meditations section. In general small self contained scripts will be better accepted than larger scripts or scripts that depend on external resources such as files or databases (CPAN modules are of course ok).

Update: clarify "external resources" - thanks hippo

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
