In Defense of (Perl) Programming

Nobody can deny the fact that the Internet is absolutely flooded with information. If you want to know about it, you can more than likely find a link to it on the net. Being an aspiring Perl coder, I am always on the lookout for interesting articles on Perl coding.

Today I ran across the article called "Defensive Perl Programming" and found it to be quite good from the perspective of a beginner (so to speak). I know that there are some real Perl hackers out there and each believes in a particular style of coding, as does each of us. In fact, Randal Schwartz ( Merlyn ), wrote a book titled "Perl Best Practices", that I believe to be quite the bible of what to do and what not to do when coding.

It is with the assistance of resources like these, that one can learn to be a better coder and JAPH.

Actually, Damian Conway wrote Perl Best Practices

He he, you are so correct. I think I wrote that because I had remembered him recommending its reading. I didn't think to turn around and look at my library shelf. Although, Merlyn did write "Perls of Wisdom" which is an equally great book. Thanks for the kick in the head. :-)
