#1: Perl coding - Reinventing the Wheel ?

Posted on 2008-06-19 18:53:21 by Gunwant Singh

Hi all,

I have a dilmma for the last few days. I read an article about '10
things every Perl hacker should know' (available here:
http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-10878_11-6077064.h tml).

And I was concerned about the point that says NOT to reinvent the wheel.
I was just thinking to build up a traversal program for a directory a
couple of days ago and then I read this article.Now Perl has so many
modules made by 'The Gurus'.And I found one of them "File::Find" which
made my work so easy.

I wanted to know , what is your opinion on the same. Should we build up
the code from the very scratch - In that way we learn new ways to build
up the same code which may help in coding something similar in a better
way, or use the modules whenever/wherever they are available.

Any suggestions/opinions will be highly appreciated.

Cheers,
Gunwant Singh.

Build from scratch to teach yourself about things, but use the wheels
already invented for real/production work.

The most important skill a programmer can have is the ability to read.
