in reply to Opinions on usefulness of Perldoc

I started off with reading SAMS Teach yourself PERL in 21 days and have to say that it is good for getting into it. Especially the section about the regular expressions ins't that bad after all... After that I used the man-pages only. They are good if you are searching for the syntax of a function, or even for /s and /m - if you already know what they mean and to remind which one is which....

P.S.: /s is matching \n with ., /m is handling ^ and $ after and before each \n :-)
