( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Heck. I dunno what to do.

Just do it. It is possible - if you want it. I did it just some years ago - one year after i used a computer for the first time in my live ( i'm 56 now). Before i relied on paper and pencil and considered computers as rubbish.

Same thing with Unix. Some day my boss came and said: "Karl, can you do this and that on this machine?". The OS was AIX. I had no plan, the only OS i knew at that time was NT. So i learned some shell commands by the hard way.

Before i started bothering myself with computers i had another career: i was a musician. Playing baroque chamber music, teaching a.s.o.

Very often my pupils asked me similar questions: "I'm this and that... and can i really...?". I always answered: Yes, just do it.

Proof: Just some time ago i met a piano player, about 40 years++ old. When he was ~35, his very wish was to become an expert in comping. So he went to Berklee and just did it.

I hope this helps and best regards, Karl

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.
