  • Heh, I ran into that during the writing of the Slash book. Part of the way through one chapter, I realized "I know all this stuff, why would I read it?" Then the editor bopped me on the head and said "Know thy audience", and all was good again. For safety's sake, Pudge then bopped me on the head and said, "Some people don't follow the directions in INSTALL, so be very clear on how to get help."

    That means there's a section on using perldoc and the CPAN and finding the real Perl and Apache and MySQL mailing lists and asking good questions in a Slash book.

    Perhaps a solution is to find where "nascent" programmers congregate (read, "leech questionable code") and promote the good stuff, time after time after time.
