( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I would have to say that we are all learning as we go. Some of us are learning at different levels no doubt but I have seen some sharp people asking questions on Perl Monks.

In fact I will admit right here in front of everyone, I have never successfully installed anything from CPAN. Both times I have tried the *$%#(*& module wouldn't build. Of course except for the Excel and XML modules I've never actually needed anything off CPAN. In the Excel case I just did it in VBA (ugh). I've never had time to futz with it at work, and I have different interests after work. That is changing now, but CPAN is my boogey man.

Laugh all you want, I feel so much more humble now; soon I will try again (when I am not under a deadline) and ask my fellow monks what I am doing wrong if it doesn't work...

Update: (VBA is Visual Basic for Applications, it is used to control the Office Applications)
