I think you're making a mistake trying to program in Java like you program in Perl. Each language has its own set of metaphors and idioms. To reach optimal coding velocity you will need to learn a new way of doing things. Trying to import one language's metaphors and idioms into another is only going to impede your progress.

Case in point: C programmers that program Perl as though it were C with scalars. Of course they'd be twice as efficient if they realized they could replace all their for(;;) loops with foreach, map and grep, but they concentrate so hard on making Perl feel like C that they miss them completely.

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
