I have to agree with Abigail-II
- I started out teaching myself, from example BASIC programs on the Acorn Electron (out of user magazines), but I don't think I coded too badly in spite of that.. Later I learned formally and didnt need to change much of my style that I remember. I should find some of my early BASIC to try and prove/disprove that :)
Anyway, only started Perl mid-2002, and had been programming a while before that (must be 15 yrs now), so my original perl wasn't that bad in terms of indenting, modularizing etc. (And I still don't use strict, but I don't consider that a bad thing :)
*wonders where those early BASIC tapes might be.. good job the ole Electorn still works.. :)*
