Need some advice on learning perl
Message ID:
Hi, everyone,

This is the first time I post my words on a mail list, so I would be
enlighted if it works ...

I am a newbie of perl. I have got through some classic perl books, such as
<Learning Perl> and <Intermediate Perl>, and I did some tiny works on perl,
e.g. a Tk helper that helps me with my vocabulary study, and a BBS search
engine works under TELNET(which is really poor ... ).

I really liked perl since it's really convenient in programming(not only the
syntaxs, but also CPAN, e.g. we can use IO::Socket to do network jobs rather
than system APIs), and I want to get deeper in learning perl. Does anyone
can give me some advice on HOW?

My rough idea is :
1. What I need now is more code reading, and maybe write a module of my own?
Is there any suggested modules to learn for a beginner?
2. Maybe I am not fully prepared, but I really want to anticipate in some
free software projects(or say, devote some of my time to the free software,
from where I got lots of help), but I don't know what to start.

Thanks for your suggestions, if possible ...
