acid_burnIs "Programming Perl" a good book for someone who doesn't know Perl at all?
rmahacid_burn: only if you already know how to program in some other language
acid_burnSweet. Well, I got the book for free.
But I don't know how to program otherwise.
Teal_StallionI'm the best there is plain and simple, I wake up every morning and piss excellence
acid_burnShould I learn C++ first?
actiondmpk2k laughs.
dmpk2klaughs.
rmahum... you're saying you don't know how to write software in any other language?
acid_burnUh, yes.
I guess that's a faux pas in here.
rmahthen that book will probably just confuse you
acid_burnBut humor me, please.
rmahok
acid_burnDon't be a dipshit, like dmpk2k.
rmaha dog walks into a bar
Teal_Stallionacid_burn, i suggest beginning perl
rmahit stumbles up to the bartender and says
Teal_Stallionby simon cozens
dmpk2kHmm? I think you misconstrued why I laughed.
acid_burnThanks, Teal_Stallion.
rmah"I'm looking for the man who shot my pa!"
Teal_Stallionacid_burn, you can also get the online version of that book
rmahare you humored now?
dmpk2kC++ as a first language is a bad idea. Don't do it.
acid_burnWhereabout, Teal_Stallion?
Teal_Stalliongoogle it
Beginning Perl
download the online pdfs
acid_burnThen what's a "good" first language, dmpk2k?
rmahacid_burn: perl is a fine first language
maukehaskell :-)
rmahbut that book, "Programming Perl" isn't aimed at people who know nothing about programming
Teal_StallionC++ isn't a bad first language either
dmpk2kThere's a lot of debate on that. C++ it isn't though.
acid_burnGotcha.
dmpk2kTeal_Stallion: I must disagree.
Too much boilerplate for someone new.
rmahperl, java, lisp, C, VB, C++, C#, etc, etc. are all fine for your first language
acid_burnWell, I pick up on logic and sytnax pretty well.
Okay, thanks.
