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

My final thought was just rereading Learning Perl again and again until I had the whole book memorized. That sounds pretty boring and I'm sure many will agree with me on that.

How many perl program did you create in the course of reading Learning Perl? Did you put them in version control?

I suggest next, you read, but this time, do each of the (~3 on avg) exercises listed at the end of chapters 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,11

After each chapter, after doing the exercises, write a short review, compare it to a similar chapter in Learning Perl. Try to figure out if you learned something new, how you liked the way the information was presented, was the pace better, did you have to unlearn something...

Next I would go to Perl Exercises: For Beginners :) and first do the .edu computer science courses exercises, then some project euler exercises (say first 10)

Then I would take a long break, then come back and review your progress, and review some concepts that gave you trouble during the exercises

Then i would do one or two of the katas -- and put each part into version control

At this point, I would read through Modern Perl, and explore the modern ways to solve some of the exercises you've done so far -- this is where having lots and lots of little programs in version control helps you :)

Next I would start solving real problem , and maybe do another euler exercise and a kata in between :)

Good luck

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