I don't have materials of my own, but some points: especially with a Python background, some of the differences stand out:
  • context is a concept unique to Perl, and explained very good in the corresponding chapter of chromatic's book
  • Python has an explicit Boolean data type, Perl has a boolean context
  • Python regular expressions are strings, hence different quoting, and "PCRE" are not 100% "PC".
  • last but not least: as Python only has lexical scope, it was difficult for me to understand dynamic scopes, and although there is overlap between Perl's local and computer science's local, they are not the same.

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.
