Hi From .... Bill Scott
- Hi Greg :
Thank you for your help ..... since it appears that you do some
teaching ... I have
a question which I keep getting a jokesters remark every time I
ask on a list ....
I want to start programing in the Perl language ... but I first
want to lay down a solid
foundation for program design ... I cannot find any thing online
to help with program design I did find one on Dr Sheme
but they never get to the point do you have any suggestions ... ?

Let's see, html and NoteTab. Hmm. Nonetheless, good coding
techniques fits with html. And NoteTab is user friendly with Perl.
Currently focused document, Coding techniques, Perl, and NoteTab
might be a potential combination.
HTH, as follows, just to share:

the ^!URL is the only line, a rather long line
(I'm not Greg) but Bill you might try urls and progsharehouse above
has forums to also ask. Even I found that egroups has a Perl list.
I've not had much time to even check out the above urls all that
much. it was some results of searching and exploring one evening.
If you decide to try them, I'd like to hear back regard the useful
ones thereof. (I'm a recent newbie to Perl myself)
(The language) Q Basic
community college used to (probably still do) use that language to
teach entry things and concepts. You might try internet search
engine on Q Basic
just some thoughts there. might be i wonder if you found the right
tutorial or lesson perhaps you could just start out in small ways on
Perl (lessons with guidelines for having good design)

students are mainly the unemployed, and others with some social disadvantage, or
the senior citizens taking their first dip into the computing world. Either
way, I only deal initial introductions and certainly not programming - unless
you count basic HTML as programming - which I don't.

regarded as good programming in my youth, no longer is. In the early days, the
all powerful god was compact programming. That was when every last byte
counted. These days with megabytes of memory, it's more a case of
maintainability. I'm just way out of date! I haven't done any programming
since getting a PC (unless you count writing somewhat complex DOS batch files).
My expertise was with the Z80 processor back in the days of CP/M!
