basicdez has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I know that you guys have been very busy. I am just returning to the field after an almost 3 year vacation. Any pointers on bringing me up to speed quickly would be most appreciated!

    Always use strictures in your Perl code (use strict; use warnings;).

    Always preview your nodes and edit as required before clicking create

    Never use pre tags in PM nodes.

    Use Super Search before you write up a SoPW.

    Don't plagiarise.

    Welcome and enjoy your time here. ;)

    Update: fix spelling


    DWIM is Perl's answer to Gödel
      Thanks I will be sure to use your advice. It is much appreciated.

    Hi basicdez,

    ++Grandfather for some great suggestions.

    Let me add a couple of my own ...

    Use Data::Dumper whenever you're in doubt what your data looks like.

    Ask short questions in the Chatterbox -- people are often quick to give great advice there.

    Experiment with new concepts, and they'll quickly become part of your repertoire.

    Use a debugger of your choice.  My personal favorites are print and printf. ;-)

    Treat others the way you'd like to be treated.

    Share your own knowledge and experience; everyone has unique gifts to offer.

    Have as much fun as you can.  The journey is at least as important as the destination.

    Good luck!


    s''(q.S:$/9=(T1';s;(..)(..);$..=substr+crypt($1,$2),2,3;eg;print$..$/
      thanks for all of this advice. I have to admit, I feel a bit like a fish out of water, plus I found out that I got hired on as a consultant for 1/2 the cost of this other guy who started on the same day as me! I hate Korporate Amerika. I just need some more confidence so that I can demand the BIG BUCKS!
      peace, LOVE and ((code)) basicdez

    This works fine in many situations:

    return;
