Im so new that I just wrote my first hello world script using PERL, I did the same thing in PHP but 3 months later i created a pretty impressive web applications.
GUI Interface with PERL - So Newbie just created Hello World
I'm Using activeperl Win32 on Windows 7, have Dual boot with ubuntu 10.04.1 As Well, Switch between depending on if I want to play a game or not
I'm brand new to Perl but have been programming for about 4 years on and off with PHP and MySQL, the days before CSS were horrible. Also in process of learning Visual Basic 2008. I'm impressed in the powerful functionality of Visual Basic code, but Mainly I'm simply Mainly Interested in the Simple but Complex GUI Building capabilities of the Studio Editor and the Ease of which it makes GUI Creation Possible as most are.
But I want to know, and I will be focusing my 100's of threads in the future here (apart from asking stupid newbie questions about perl) on is it possible and if so simple to implement or integreate or incorporate (tell me the differnece if one of those is correct, because I dont know them apart) PERL if I become a guru at the language and it's accompanying languages as the ONLY language with tids of Visual Basic to tie it together, possibly with some PHP into the beautiful GUI Builder of Visual Sudio 2008 to create Cross Platform GUI , Beautiful, Amazingly Functional, User Friendly GUI Applications - or is there another better way to create Graphic(ical?) User Interface Applications using/for PERL that's as amazing and as the GUI that can be created by Visual Studio and VisuaL Basic.
I'm So Passionate about becoming a Master at PERL and Creating Cross Platform GUI User Friendly, Extremly "In Demand Applications". Sorry to ramble but I will most likely be posting 100's of threads within the 4 or 5 months of learning before I go into the Navy and hopefully become a System Weapons Designer to make MISSles HITTles (because missles tend to miss alot, get it) or System Admin Security Counter Hacker, Applications developer - Something important, wont join if I'm not programming with computers...
I'd just like to say thank you and You have a Wonderful Community and Forum here and I'd like to thank you all and ask for some Advice, Answers and as much info as you can give me about the Subject, and the best way to learn PERL.
If you Continue to Read On, You'll understand WHy I ask this and need to know if my question is answered to my delight, because I've set a Goal - and the only way to learn a programming language in my opinion is to plan a program - learn as much as you can, and start writing the program using reference guides, tutorials, forums, bibles, and 100's of red bulls and sleepless nights.
If PERL could be used with Visual Studio's Beautiful and Simple GUI Editor or Another GUI Editor made Specifically for making PERL GUI, I Would make a Email Client (or something simple, until I'm a master at perl) My main goal and project I Hope to create before I Die is to create my own Personal All About Me or (You if I ever complete it and release it) that is designed to look great with images cutting edge, beautiful themes addibs with Tabs and Buttons that lead to the most interesting things that that a Person could want in his own "Opereating System inside a Operating System (BUT NOWHERE NEAR as large, maybe 20 functions or less maybe more??) like "Click here to Access your Bank Statement, or click the newsgroups tab to add the newsgroup URLS and watch Live Newsgroup feeds scrolling, Tweet or post on your favorite Social Netowkring Site in a whole new way, maybe a NEW one, A Simple area that reads you have "This Amount of new EMails" with the top 5 newest floating in a bubble that let syou click the link and it opens the email client, ETC...Even if I come up with a more Realistic Program Goal, That's Smaller, SImpler - I will make sure that it's something that the LINUX and WIndoze Community has been asking for.
