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.

[LanX]: unusual that "Pimp my Bride" never made it into TV (?)
LanX sighs ... no idea stupid enough
[choroba]: "Smack My Bitch Up" did, though
[Eily]: that's the internet for you LanX
[Eily]: and I'm pretty sure there's a rule somewhere that states that the stupider the idea, the more likely it is to already have been done
