in reply to Resources to get help in Perl

I used to give this as an interview question for perl programmer candidates: when you don't know the answer, or want to research a new problem, where do you look?.

Most people had pretty deficient answers: google usually started the list, then their favourite book (which was often not the Camel or Llama). Most stopped there.

I think its an excellent idea to teach these resources as an explicit part of training. Teach a man to fish...
