Online ResourcesPerldoc Site Search CPAN

I put this together for myself, but thought others might find it useful. I've added it to my personal nodelet for quick access. Turn to it when you are looking for sources of information on a given general subject.

In a way, it's a regurgitation of a subset of perltoc, but to me the format is more conducive to quickly finding what I'm looking for. Of course one could always do a search on the Perldoc site, but this is just intended to put the most frequently used docs right in front of you. It doesn't offer descriptions, but the categories along with document names should be helpful enough in knowing what each doc is going to present.

Some of the 'Pragmas' links will not work properly until the Perldoc website is completely back up on its feet again.

Otherwise, please do let me know if you find a dead link so I can get it repaired. Also, let me know if there's anything you would like to see added. I didn't try to list every document, but primarily those that are most useful to the biggest majority of people.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
