I've gotten a lot of practice with references as a result, and I needed it. I'm starting to actually know what's in a data structure when I code them from time to time, mostly because of Data::Dumper. Frequently, when the data structure doesn't fit right with object or something using the data structure, Dumper is what helps me figure out where I went wrong. That, plus I've had perlboot, perlbot, and perltoot open during all my coding.
Probably once I finish working on this I'll post it at the Monastery for a code review. I could use that; I don't know if my code is as sharp as it was, or if it's actually improved.
Working more on trying to be hirable. Anybody got any feedback on _What Color Is Your Parachute_? I'm reading it currently, and considering using its techniques.
