We certainly wouldn't want to have any general questions about the wisdom of different approaches to problems here would we? lol. I found your reply slightly ironic because of your username, not that it is an issue, just tickled my funny bone.

    Ah, so if I want to seek advice on how to repair a leaking roof, or how to raise kids, Perlmonks is the appropriate forum?

      If your gonna write a program to do it then maybe ;). He asked a programming/design related question that wasn't specific to a programming langauge (though he could have just assumed that it was going to be written in perl). I think this might be on the border of being OT, but it certainly isn't the first instance of someone seeking advice when searching for a solution to a problem. The OP didn't ask how to do it in JAVA, or something completely unrelated to computers so I don't see this as OT. I think that the community here is generally open to working on solutions even if they aren't 100% perl related, and some of us even enjoy that, its not as if we are being inundated by non-perl questions in which case the guidlines might end up being stricter. Either way you are free to simply not reply to any questions.

      I certainly hope that perlmonks remains a place that individuals can come to their peers for assistance and direction even when not 100% perl related.

      Are you gonna be repairing the roof using Perl?
