This talk is for beginning or casual Perl programmers. Code reuse is one of the most important strategies for productivity when programming. Even when writing simple system administration tasks, a little bit of planning for re-use can save great amounts of time in the future.
We'll discuss how to write good subroutines that you can re-use and re-purpose easily over time. We'll look at putting those subroutines into packages for sharing between programs, and putting the packages in distributions for sharing between computers and users.
