    Check out the global board at; I think it makes more sense to contribute to that existing resource than to establish another one and further fraction the market.
      And besides, the volunteers who make this site run have too much to do as it is. :-)

      (so many nodes and so little time ... )

      It might be a good idea simply to add perl jobs to the navigation bar menu.

    Maybe there should be a nodelet that diplays the RSS feed from That should be low/no maintainance once it is up and then will always be current.

    --tidiness is the memory loss of environmental mnemonics

      I don't know about the low/no maintenance part. I just tried to check the RSS page you cited and got an error page. It seems XML didn't like a question mark. An RSS feed might not be as easy as you think.



      Perl has one Great Advantage and one Great Disadvantage:

      It is very easy to write a complex and powerful program in three lines of code.


      The Needs of the World and my Talents run parallel to infinity.
        Funny - maybe it was just a temporary glitch. The following code works nicely for me (as a proof of concept).
        use YAML; use XML::Simple; use LWP::UserAgent; print Dump( XMLin( LWP::UserAgent->new->get( "" )->content() ) );

        Maybe you just bumped into an update glitch or something similar. Still you're right - there will no doubt be some unexpected things that need to be taken into account.

    Register at, and you'll get each job announcement relevant to the regions you specify.

    That way, people not interested in job hunting don't have to see things about jobs.
