"Perl" is not an acronym. The name came first, and some people put on some acronym-ish words onto it later (in other words, a "backronym", much the same way some people call LISP "Lots of Irritating, Silly Parens"). But in reality, it's just "Perl", no acronym.

The name is mostly a way of identifying who is "in the know" and not. People who use "Perl" and "perl" correctly can be identified as having some basic level of community knowledge. It's much the same as the fact that there is a trick to post to the alt.hackers newsgroup. This is a historically common way of seperating the chaff on the Internet.

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
