( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

interactive Knowledge Base I'll second that!

I use Perl Monks as a resource to help me solve a problem when I find I am unable to resolve a Perl-ish question myself. The knowledge and wisdom contained within the various postings and online users is immense!

However as a user of Perlmonks I try to give something back to the community whenever I can. I only started Perl 4 months ago so I may not have the XP of some other monks on the site but I can help out those who only started 2 months ago! And in many ways I can relate to their problems better then others who have long moved on past the beginner-intermediate stage and forgotten why it isn't obvious that you can't sort a hash directly.

Personally I am not a Perlmonks user to make friends or join an online chat-community, some people are and that is their choice, but I do like to see serious postings and humor/ non Perl related postings kept separate.

Okay I'm going to stop waffling about random crap and do some work! Thanks for reading this far.


I give and I take from the Perlmonks offering plate and I think thats something everyone should do
