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

I am also very new here and while I spend long hours reading the dry nodes pertaining to Perl. It is a refreshing change to read such nodes. At least much better than those annoying quizzes. Sometimes when i wanted to thank a fellow monk for helping me, I am not able to do so because we don't login at the same time and i can't send him a msg through the CB. It is also annoying to post 1 liner thank you nodes.

Perhaps there should be a forum here. A place where fellow monks can post anything under the sun, their feelings, frustrations, general discussion, etc and these nodes cannot be voted on. Maybe those nodes on Quizzes can be transferred to this forum too.

Just a thought.

UPDATE: Thanks to mirod and kudras for highlighting that msg can still be send thru CB when users are offline. The first time i tried it didn't work, so I assume.

use Text::Soundex; print soundex ("Skullbowl");
