( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Thanks for the responses, everyone. They bring to mind some things I should go about learning, and some things I should clarify.

First off, things I should learn - I'll be picking up Mastering Regular Expressions and Higher Order Perl fairly quickly.

Secondly, a clarification - right now, I don't actually work with Perl for my dayjob(or at least, not most of the time - our sysadmin gets me to write him tools every once in a while) - my employer is running a pure M$ shop, and so I work primarily with ASP.Net and C# for my day job - all of my own personal projects are Perl, however.

I know a few other languages, in addition to the standard Web Developer pile - Javascript, XHTML, CSS, and at least one server-side language(in my case Perl, although I can fumble my way along with PHP as well).

I actually already own a copy of Object Oriented Perl - I thought it was interesting(as was Moose), but I haven't encountered a situation where it immediately sprang to mind that "hey, I should use OOP for this!" - I generally design my projects in such a way as to not need OOP. I do use it for some things - I just don't encounter too many situations where I'd like to use OOP and don't already.

I guess, really, I'm looking for cool things I can learn that I don't already know that can speed up my development time and let me reduce repetition. That's why learning about things like map and grep was awesome - because I could instantly see how much they saved on time(and keystrokes).

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