in thread cannot follow hanoi subroutine

btw, Mark, when is book "Perl Program Repair Shop and Red Flags" coming out?
That is a good question. Thanks for asking.

It was supposed to be out already, but about a year ago, the publisher fired my editor and did not appoint another one. I am not sure what is going on, and I have been busy enough with other stuff that I have not pursued it.

So I don't know.

    Mark, would you consider having the unfinished-material available for fee?

    I am a big fan of "Perl program repair shop and red flags" articles and been waiting for a while for more articles on line or actual book to come out
    Unforunately, I feel that I learn more about writing Perl from those articles than reading any articles or books
    I brought a whole bunch of perl books after finishing "Learning Perl" because I needed to write longer and complicated programs.

    My honest opinion(?) with no CS background, is that all these perl books are not that helpful when it comes to teaching people how to
    top down design and come up with algorithm and putting codes together.
    And thatís why now I am going back to my pascal course that I took almost 13 years ago to help me understand the algorithm and way to design.
    Someone suggest to me that reading someone elseís program is the best way to learn and after reading "redflag series", I feel that there should be more books with real programs(since locating just right program for me to learn from of someone elseís code is not that easy) explaning things rather Than typical Perl books that out there.
      Honestly what you are looking for is not a Perl specific skill, and you should not be looking for a Perl specific book to address it. Instead my recommendation is to read Code Complete.
        I got hold of the book. I will read them and let you know. thanks.
