Perl Programming Guide With Respect to File Username and Grouping (in the linux space)
For a bit of context, I am 59 years old and very likely will never program in a working capacity again. I switched from engineering to programming when I was 40 and so little formal training. Did a ton of Perl programming in automation though I afterward came to realize the proficiency level not all that high. Oh, I worked nearly exclusively in the unix/linux space. I did some web programming.
I just got a refurbished desktop and installed Ubuntu linux on it. I want to use it for web programming with Perl (including Mojolicious).
I want to do things right from the get-go and I am wondering about using the linux space with respect to user and grouping of files. I canít remember details, I just remember having some issues with this before. I think it was primarily handling things where the user for the application was something other than root while root owned all standard Perl files, including modules (not my Perl and other programs). I think I also encountered a challenge with the programming editor with respect to what user it was downloaded with and then the ownership of files I tried to edit with it.
I internet searched this subject and so far have come up empty.
I am just hoping for basic rules of thumb with respect to programming and users and grouping. Perhaps there is an online source for this subject? Any suggestions?
