++ for your new encounters with it, and CPAN itself...

I was lucky enough to get into Perl via a guy who swears by CPAN. Even now that I don't work with him anymore, when we talk shop he'll ask "you are making sure to check CPAN for modules that can help?"...It was one of his big points during my Perl training.

There are many many tasks that I would have not had a clue how to start in on, only to make a desperate search of CPAN and find at least one (usually more) specialized module to fit the mold...

Then you've got the documentation available on CPAN to guide by example.

Yup, I give CPAN a good ole' tip of me cap...
