But alas, a programmer buddy from Sweden pointed out many of the errors in my ways when I showed him the source. He laughed at me. I was ashamed of my efforts -- all tha time I pissed away doing stupid crap. I buried my print outs in my backyard (along with my sister's tae bo tapes...*shudder*) and decided to learn how to do things the right way. I spent weeks looking at random nodes as well as reading merlyn's articles on his site. This is why I think so highly of him. I've grown to love CPAN and can even quote perldoc with little effort.
...at least that's how I made my way out of the darkness and into the light.
