The Seven Steps to Perl Mastery by Tom Christiansen. A Perl Novice... -- Thinks CGI and Perl are interchangeable terms. -- Still thinks Perl looks like bad C code viewed over a noisy modem. -- Is insecure about the concept of dollar signs and at signs. -- Thinks Perl should be more like sh or tcl. -- Has heard of the ``Unix mindset'', but hopes it's a treatable condition. -- Can't figure out how to read input from the keyboard. -- Thinks regular expressions are somebody cursing. -- Wonders why no one can give him a straight answer about whether Perl is compiled or interpreted. A Perl Initiate... -- Has begun to learn about $_ -- and doesn't like it one bit. -- Thinks the -w flag is a waste of time. -- Thinks Perl should be more like C++ or Java. -- Is still trying to figure why Perl has two different kinds of arrays. -- Knows how to use perlbug, but sends in bogus bug reports. -- Has been bitten by implicit context conversions, but hasn't caught on yet to how triggered it. -- Can't keep == separate from eq, and still thinks that + should concatenate strings. A Perl User... -- Thinks Perl is just for text processing. -- Uses the Perl debugger. -- Has used other people's modules. -- Wonders what an object is. -- Knows their way around CPAN. -- Knows the difference between local and my. -- Uses <DATA>. -- Is still trying to figure what references are for. -- Thinks Perl should be more like scheme or eiffel. -- Submits real bug reports with perlbug. A Perl Adept... -- Write JAPHs to impress their friends and annoy their coworkers. -- Begins all programs with use strict. -- Thinks Perl should just be Perl. -- Has taken enough advantage of cryptocontext to annoy others. -- Knows how to create records and objects with hash refs. -- Uses syscall to get at undocumented operating system calls. -- Curses the flexibility of the Perl object system. -- Uses /e in substitutes. -- Has begun to wonder what typeglobs are for. -- Has written their own modules in Perl. -- Begins to look at all data in terms of regular expressions. -- Understands why regexes can't match nested data. -- Rewrites minor utilities in Perl. A Perl Hacker... -- Writes games in Perl. -- Has written extension modules in C. -- Uses AUTOLOAD and closures in curious ways. -- Appreciates the aesthetics of the Schwartzian Transform. -- Delights in the flexibility of the Perl object system. -- Has written their own pod2XXX translator. -- Understands the output from Perl -Dflags. -- Accesses the Perl symbol table directly. -- Submits bug reports with working patches. -- Edits files using a special Perl-embedded version of vi or emacs. -- Has contributed modules, manpages, and tools to the standard Perl distribution. A Perl Guru... -- Can answer any Perl question instantly. -- Can write anything in Perl -- and does. -- Takes advantage of undocumented language features. -- Writes code that gives even Larry pause. -- Implements opaque objects and compiled regexes using closures. -- Can read and understand the output of the perl-to-C compiler. -- Embeds Perl interpreters in larger applications. -- Has written their own -d:debugger module. -- Used object-oriented programming before it existed. -- Is debating taking their turn with the patch pumpkin. A Perl Wizard... -- Is on a first-name basis with Larry's wife. -- Has written or rewritten major subsystems of the Perl compiler or interpreter. -- Is thinking about rewriting the regex engine, the memory allocator, or the garbage collector. -- Doesn't write games in Perl because they realize that Perl *is* the game.
