First things first: I'm sorry for the cheesy name to the thread :o .

I'm still technically a beginner when It comes to programming, but I'm learning quickly.

Currently, I'm fluent with PERL...which would explain the bad thread name ;)

Funnily enough, my teacher (my dad) has been telling me that I'm programming PERL at a university level...but I only half believe him. The only thing I believe at the moment is that Command-Line parsing is hard as ** :confused:

Anyways, I just wanted to say 'HI'.

Hey suicidal pencil, welcome to CodeCall! What have you learned about Perl so far?


well, to put what I've learned about it into perspective, I'm currently upgrading what I'm calling a 'Command-Line calculator'. It had the worst interface imaginable, and It forced the user to do too much work ><

Now, I've upgraded it a little.

To add 25+25, it used to be like this:

.
.
.
<25 #input
<switch #input
<25 #input
<add #input
>50 #output

now, with the help of indexes, it's more like this:

.
.
.
<25+25 #input
>50 #output

Much better :)

I'm currently working on an information storage program...

Right now, I've just got to learn all the keywords, and break a few bad habits...but other then that, I'm about to go off and learn Python.

If you are writing programs that 1) run with 2) a minimal amount of trial and error then you are 3) writing code at a university level. If you sit in a university Intro to Programming course, you will find that most people in the class will NEVER be able to code their way out of a paper bag with a flowchart provided.

Programming is a branch of mathematics.
