I think for a lot of people, there simply isn't much need. A lot of folks just want to tweak something minor in a script or two they downloaded for example, and have no aspirations to become Perl gurus at any point. Assuming most saints, if they're not experts, at least have picked up a lot of stuff just by participating on PerlMonks if not in any other way, we have several hundred active members at the site who are at least moderately equipped to contribute meaningfully.

That's quite a good ratio, if you ask me. Indeed, PerlMonks is really the only webbased forum I have come across with such a concentration of expertise.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
