We can all get bogged down in the way "we" do things, or the way our project or team uses modules, objects etc.

Perl is so rich that very few of us appreciate all the productive uses of all of Perl's features, especially outside the problem domains in which we are comfortable.

With the demise of The Perl Journal (long live The Perl Journal!) and the way that other mags are stuffed with Java, Python and even Ruby (which I admit to quite liking) it's not obvious how to stay fresh.

Obviously reading and occasionally wading into PerlMonk discussions is one useful tool to keep one's mind open.

Another I do from time to time is to run through some random quesions in snowdrift.org's Perl Test.

What do other people do to hone their Perl skills and their knowledge of useful CPAN modules?

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