Re: [TotalNoob] How do I do this...
Thank you, but I already read this info on that (and many other) sites and I don't understand it. It is as far as I understand, written for people that already know something perl. I don't, and that information doesn't make it any clearer. That's why I thought someone here could explain it in simple words, but I was wrong. Sorry for have taken your time.
perl documentation is different from "many other sites".
In case of any doubt what so ever. There are only two authentic sources that one is referred to One the "Camel book" (now in 3rd ed) and Second Perl documentation itself.
You like everybody else should have a personal copy of "Camel book" (I am having 2ed) but let me tell (forewarn) you that except for the first few chapters rest of it you may find tough to understand.
But again if you are genuinely interested in learning Perl you will have to go through the Camel book at some or the other point in your life / carrier, so why not start today.
Forums like this help but they cannot be a replacement for building a foundation; programming tips or sharing of knowledge can only be a supplement to your efforts.
You need "Conceptual clarity" and for that best source is the camel book (No Body can ever dispute this), please spend some time reading and (more importantly) understanding it.
As you might already be knowing there are no easy solutions to anything
-For all my suggestions " I am sure someone else can do it in a better or elegant manner!"
