( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I feel you, man, er, as it were.

My philosophy is that there are alot of areas where my own expertise is well below that of others; leveraging those others' skills effectively permits me to focus on my own goals in the short term (which pays the bills). In the long term, osmosis is unavoidable anyway.

The upshot (for me), is that CGI.pm (like XS and many other facilities that come with perl) are black box tools which do what I need for very little cost, and one day (when a get a round TUIT), perhaps I'll dissect them to understand more.

Why rush the inevitable?

BTW, one point in CGI.pm's favor: it doesn't pollute your namespace without being told to.
