<i>Does Wolfram|Alpha has any Perl-related content?</i>
</ul>
<br>
Depends on the definition and scope of "Perl-related". Wolfram|Alpha is as related to Perl as Google would be.<br>
<br>
We have various kinds of [node://43037|shortcuts] on PerlMonks to help us point to helpful web content when trying to explain things. I see Wolfram|Alpha as a way of (at least) describing mathematical notions with better illustration in our posts. Of course, it's not only limited to mathematics. Think of it as a more technical content-targeted version of Google.<br>
<br>
An example post could contain:<br>
<br>
<ul>
There are [http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=10+choose+3|120 ways] of choosing any 3 things from a pile of 10 different ones. (PerlMonk shortcut: <c>[wolfram://10 choose 3|120 ways]</c>)
