Oh dear. After downloading all the prereqs I naively thought my job was done but I found that I could not get Text::Iconv to compile in Cygwin or in native Windows. Nobody else in the world seems to have this problem and indeed nobody else seems to have tried this on a Windows machine. Maybe I will try on a Linux server later but I probably ought to write the presentation first....

Still can't work out a general rule though
I am trying to working out this weeks expert QOTW from MJD and finding it a bit tricky. I had worked out the pattern for 3,5 and 7 games but the 9 games in the progression doesn't appear to be correct. After a bit of head scratching I think I will have to give up and search on the web. Well its not my Perl skills letting me down it just my maths...
BTW here is where I am at the mo..
The last one in this series isn't right...
Ohmigod its been a long time since I did any maths...
My first journal entry.
I've got something to admit. Although I have been Programming Perl for about a year and a half now, I have never read Programming Perl.
Up to now I have relied on Learning Perl, Data Munging with Perl, Effective Perl Programming and Object Orientated Perl. All of which are great books that I can throughly recommend.
People had always told me that Programming Perl (the book) was not a good read but I am really enjoying it it is teaching me things that I thought I already knew but didn't and it is funny!. To some extent, it is making me excited about writing Perl again - which lets face it has got to be a "good thing".
