in reply to Where and how to start learning Perl

I'm not seeing the documentation included with Perl, accessed via command-line. I find the following quite handy:
perldoc perl displays the listing of docs and describes Perl perldoc -f open displays the documentation for the "open" function perldoc -q larry displays the topics from the FAQs which contain the word "larry"
This stuff is available anywhere you have Perl (if the docs have been installed, some admins are odd), which is handy when you're coding in the coffee shop (without wifi) and can't get to the Monastery.


Perl programming and scheduling in the corporate world, as explained by dragonchild:
"Uhh ... that'll take me three weeks, broken down as follows: 1 day for coding, the rest for meetings to explain why I only need 1 day for coding."

[GotToBTru]: no, lookup
[stevieb]: no, I mean have you considered using a dispatch table. an 80 condition if/else is huge :)
[GotToBTru]: that is how this should have been done, no question
