in reply to Perl Script Download

Neat idea, but it won't work :-) Perl code on the web, when accessed, is run first (via the webserver) -- it's always the output of the Perl code which you will see.. which is typically HTML, in this situation.

Thats not to say there aren't any good places for Perl code on the web though. There are literally hundreds or thousand of tutorials to assist you in all levels of Perl coding.. many of which were written by people on this site. Might I recommend using the search features here to find them. Good luck!

Update: Some other resources
  • The Tutorials section in the Monastery
  • One of my favorites, the mod_perl guide. This isn't just about mod_perl though, you can pick up all sorts of goodies from this guide. Everything from usage of various modules, to which styles of coding are the most efficient with memory/speed, to web programming techniques.
