What is perl.com? perl.org? The Perl Institute?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

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

The perl.com domain is managed by Tom Christiansen, who created it as a public service long before perl.org came about. Despite the name, it's a pretty non-commercial site meant to be a clearinghouse for information about all things Perlian, accepting no paid advertisements, bouncy happy gifs, or silly java applets on its pages. The Perl Home Page at http://www.perl.com/ is currently hosted on a T3 line courtesy of Songline Systems, a software-oriented subsidiary of O'Reilly and Associates.

perl.org is the official vehicle for The Perl Institute. The motto of TPI is ``helping people help Perl help people'' (or something like that). It's a non-profit organization supporting development, documentation, and dissemination of perl.

[Corion]: gnosti: I would cheat and use my approach instead of dealing with durations as objects, or a module
[Corion]: You could even do the calculation directly - my $duration = $H * 3600+ $M*60 + $S; strftime '%H:%M:%S', timelocal($duratio n)
[Corion]: (and that strftime call is largely superfluous too, converting back to H:M:S isn't hard either)
