jcwren has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Congratulations to the last person who voted this simple request down. I've had it with the trolls, votebots, and general decline of civilization of PM. I'm outta here.
Updated: Apparently, some people are dim enough to think this is a 'do my homework' type node. It's not. It's code for a future PM-related utility. I'm looking for a little help for something I'd rather not write if it already exists. I think it's called 'Not Reinventing The Wheel'.
