Just wanted to add something more:
- First do %man perl
Here you'll see the different perl manuals you can read.
- Second do what footpad told you. Do %man perldoc
Learn this command! You can get information about perlfunctions, commands,... Just like the supersearch on PM.
- Last but not least. Don't trust all the resources on the web. Hence Matt's script archive :)
So the best advise is. Try it first on your own. What you can get on perlmonks is: or a general direction how you can solve something or a solution of a problem you stumbled across when programming something. But don't expect complete out of the box solutions!
My opinions may have changed,
but not the fact that I am right
