But lately we seem to have had some questions that, well, I'd expect people to be able to answer for themselves, with a little research.
So I thought I'd do a roundup of basic information sources. This is off the top of my head, so if other monks want to chip in with similar resources, then that would be peachy. ;)
- We have a charming Tutorials section
- Not to mention Categorized Questions and Answers
- Super Search is your friend!
- Every (mainstream) module has documentation, usually copious and clear. You can search.cpan.org to find it
- perl.com has many useful resources.
- groups.google.com has nearly 3 million articles about Perl.
- O'Reilly and Manning (among others) publish useful Perl books (many of which have Reviews). If you're Learning Perl, you could do worse than buy Learning Perl.
- Under Unix, type man perl and perldoc perldoc for access to a positive Library of information. (Windows equivalents, Windows-monks?)
- Anyone programming in Perl really needs to own a copy of Programming Perl (known as the Camel Book).
