( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Trag a lot of times programmers just have no new ideas - the first time this happened to me I was concerned - but when you live a bit without programming you come back with twice the zeal.
The best projects are the practical ones, what do you need fixed? Decide and then come up with a solution/improvement. I totally agree with the other monks about running a local webserver; it's very easy and administering Apache was one of the most pleasurable computing experiences for me...

My main advice is: go onto the net and get exposed to as many concepts and ideas as you can, when you know about a variety of computing fields you can either work on one of them or combine two to create something brand new.
To get your spirits up with Perl download a file containing a lot of English words ( a "Dictionary file" ) and write some small scripts to do statistics on the words etc. quick and fun.

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