in reply to How do I use Perl?
I'm not much on open ended questions being front paged, and probably would have --'d it. I decided not to since this is a perfect example why perlmonks is 10x better than a newsgroup. The answers to this question are remarkable (at least the ones I've read so far) in that they aren't snide tirades about the asker's level of intelligence.
Of course, if you don't believe me, try sending this question verbatim to c.l.p.m and wait for the replies. :-)
