Perl is the guy in the background who you never see, but who always gets everything done nicely and neatly without anyone really noticing. Coming to think of it, Perl would be the ideal butler...

Perl is definitely a long raven-haired beauty of Italian temper who lets you worhsip her until she has had enough, and who you will never fully understand, no matter how long you try.

But above all, Perl is perfectly willing to cope with your quirks, do what you want it to, and still be forgiving as much as you expect it, and then some.

Oh, and no, you're definitely not the only one talking to your interpreter - at any time of day. ;-)

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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
