I've been doing Perl for over 7 years. I've only started to _really_
rely on it in the last year. 5.005 was HAWT when I was just getting
started, and it did OO. As I've quite recently discovered though...
having a good understanding of __USING__ OOP (I've been using DBI/DBD
for four years), and __CREATING__ OOP are vastly different beasts.
That said; I, for one, had no problem following your talk.

I would certainly find it quite handy. I've learned Perl in a vacuum,
I've had two books, but I've not been surrounded by people whom also
do Perl. This is the reason why I came into this group... I'm
interested in anything anyone has to say.
