What are the Perl newsgroups on USENET? Where do I post questions?

Current Perl documentation can be found at

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

The now defunct comp.lang.perl newsgroup has been superseded by the following groups:

    comp.lang.perl.announce             Moderated announcement group
    comp.lang.perl.misc                 Very busy group about Perl in general
    comp.lang.perl.moderated            Moderated discussion group
    comp.lang.perl.modules              Use and development of Perl modules                   Using Tk (and X) from Perl

    comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi  Writing CGI scripts for the Web.

Actually, the moderated group hasn't passed yet, but we're keeping our fingers crossed.

There is also USENET gateway to the mailing list used by the crack Perl development team (perl5-porters) at news:// .
