What is going on here?

Have you read ‘How Not to Program in C++’ by Steve Oualline? The book contains more than a hundred broken programs: from easy to mind twisting, and you’re supposed to find the cause of bugs. For every program there are several hints and a final explanation of the problem. We can not say that the book is “easy to read”, but if you like puzzles and program in C++, you would have liked to spend couple of evenings reading it.

We are trying to do the same for the Perl programming language: in every story there is a piece of Perl code with more or less complicated bug in it. You can find your own solution for a problem and than compare it with our one.

New stories get published mostly on Mondays, hins and solutions – on other days of the week.
