shotgunefx-

I doubt I am the only monk who sees a couple of questions a day that have been asked a hundred times before.

But isn't this something that you just did? :-)

Search doesn't seem to cut it for alot of people and many don't even bother.

Like yourself for example.

Next time, please use super search at least, before posting already-posted material.

In answer to your idea though, this type of idea is a really hard idea to put into actual existence. There are so many legal issues that it would be very unfeasible to try to do something like this. Besides, although it would be a good thing for people with slow connections to the internet, like jj808 brought up, wouldn't those people be better off just purchasing some books like the Camel, or even Llama, and just reading the perldoc's and manpages? Just a thought.

I think the intention of the idea overall is nice, but in the end, there is no way to really do this thus far.

    I should have payed a little more due diligence before asking, but then again this type of question isn't easily as quantifiable as "How do I get more than one element of an array". Actually one of the reasons I thought of this is because even with Super Search, finding what you want can be difficult.

    My thought is not to replace the Camel Book. I own two copies. My thought is for stuff that get's ask frequently that isn't covered like, "How do I keep a client from timing out?", etc. Again, I am no lawyer but if messages that were posted on the site are used on the site, I don't see why this would be an issue legally as it's being used in much the same context and no one is profiting from it (any more so than currently anyway.)
