What is the Chatterbox?

The chatterbox is the only existing chat area here at PerlMonks. It serves as both a public chatroom and a place where you can send and receive private messages to/from other members.

Almost anything you might think to ask about the Chatterbox is addressed in the main Chatterbox FAQ.

If you have a question for the Perl Monks, you should probably ask it in the chatterbox before posting in Seekers of Perl Wisdom. Many times, what you think is a difficult/complicated problem is easily solved by someone in the chatterbox. Or they may tell you you should post in Seekers of Perl Wisdom. Either way, it's a good, quick way to take advantage of other monks' experience. If you strike out in the chatterbox, you can always post in Seekers of Perl Wisdom.

I want to ask a question of the Perl Monks; where do I start?

Chatterbox?
[Eily]: if so, most subs start with my (VARIABLES) = @_ anyway
[moritz]: for short subs, I sometimes let them work on $_[0] directly
[Eily]: moritz but that should be fine unless you modify them
[choroba]: if you modify them, Perl will crash with "Modification of a read-only value attempted" for $1
[choroba]: I can't replicate the situation, but I remember it was very hard to debug
