Well, welcome! And a little advice from someone who has taken their knocks around here:

  1. Check out Understanding and Using PerlMonks
  2. Don't be offended. You'll learn quickly that a) Monks don't like homework, especially doing yours; b) they want to see what you've tried before you asked, i.e., show your work; and c) they want to see that you've done some researching on your own before clogging the airways with questions that have been asked a million times before.
  3. If you do show your code, you better start off with use strict; and wrap it with <code> tags or you'll get your wrists slapped right off the bat.
  4. Cruise around the hallways of the monastery—there's lots of hidden treasures.
  5. As you get more competent, give a hand to others not as far along in their journery.

Lastly, prepare to learn how to write Perl code the correct way—these grumpy old Monks are the best around.
