( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

While it's an interesting acronym, TITS is not always practical. In certain situations it can be a waste of time. If I know how to do something in one language and want to know if something in another language does that very thing, I can ask 'what will this do' and listen for clues of what i'm trying to do. I could try it but if it doesn't do what I want, I have to find the next thing. To ask the question saves time. For newbies like myself, I would rather ask than try 10 different modules and never find what I was looking for. Once I ask and hear that the module will do it, then I will TITS how to make it work for my purpose. IT'S GETTING TO THE RIGHT THING TO TITS!

BrowserUk hit the nail on the head! This is a great site for these questions. They may seem minor to experts but i'm just looking for a starting point. How do I ask the question? How do I find what I want? How do I google for it? I don't know so I come to perlmonks and ask the question - what does this do?

Thanks for this meditation. It was a great one and thanks BrowserUk for your comment! I look forward to learning from the more seasoned monks.

    [usemodperl]: perl is not broken, perl is being broken by the web being broken by https, for the love of banking apps on free wifi at coffee shops or something...
    [Veltro]: Wondering, would it be so hard to write a small application that you can access using http which forwards the request over web ussing ssl?
    [Veltro]: are there not even tools for that?
    [usemodperl]: the breakage is so fresh i guess not, so it's up to us! :-)
    [usemodperl]: someone has yet to make that future famous free http to https proxy written in perl and supported by ads, paypal, patreon, etc to make millions of dollars a minute!
    [Veltro]: Why would this be fresh, I recon this is stuff that happens all the time (not Perl per se)
    [Corion]: usemodperl: I'm sure you could even code that on the command line.
    [usemodperl]: definitely
