in reply to Learning Perl Online

I like to learn different modules and their practical usage.

They say "Perl is just the syntax, CPAN is the language" and things like that. There's some truth to it: learning about modules is just as diverse as learning new languages.

Asking "where can I learned foreign languages" doesn't make much sense, unless you tell us which languages you want to learn. The general answer is "at your local university" or so, which doesn't help you either.

So I suggest you rethink your approach: instead of asking "where can I learn about modules" you start asking "where can I learn how to achieve $goal", and then "which modules can I use to simplify this", and then "where can I learn how to use $module".

The answers depend very much on the specific field, and a general answer is so general that it's useless to you ("on the internet").
