Some ideas...

  • Read "Programming Perl". You'll be amazed at how much perl has to offer that you don't know about.
  • Study code written by people who predominantly use perl and do it well. Many of these people hang out here at PerlMonks and often post code.
  • Have your own code reviewed by those same people. There are several sections of the Monastery that you can post your code in. Anything you post will be reviewed.
  • Look at the modules installed on your system and see how they do things. Download modules that do things you're interested in and examine those.
  • Ask questions. If you think there might be another way or a better way, post what you have and ask others for suggestions. Use the chatterbox if it's small snippets of code.
  • Occassionally reread "Programming Perl". You'll be amazed at how much you missed the last time. (I'm on my fourth reading and still learning.
90% of every Perl application is already written.

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
  • Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
