Beginning students make beginner mistakes, just like the rest of us. Sometimes comical, sometimes painful, bad code can teach us as much as good code - sometimes more. From eq vs == to fork() while fork(), learn what not to do - preferably before you do it.

(Kevin Metcalf teaches Perl at De Anza College in Cupertino, CA, where he also works as a system administrator.)
