Hi all,

I find it quitte amusing to see all these people here exclaim how autodidact they are...

I myself was a complete autodidact at one time, but then I wanted to learn more on a faster pace, and I was no longer autodidact, cause I took over (be it unwillingly) the style of the author of that book. The same goes for all of us here. We learn a lot from other monks, and especially for highranked monks it would be very hard to reject all lessons which could be learned here, and find out all for yourself, right after you read on a subject.

So except for the newbie's among us no one is autodidact (any longer)

In reply to trs80: I agree completely with your post, but wihin the context as given above.

I do think that some of the none autodidacts do have a little advantage, cause they had the propper teacher and are therefor very well ready for certain programming issues where autodidacts mostly mess around a bit, creating working but huge code...

er formait hyarya.

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.
