( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Howzabout "What's your favorite O'Reilly book dealing with Perl" or some such? Maybe not as whimsical or light as some others, but most will have an opinion, and the results might be useful.

Or, "What's your favorite CPAN module?" (Though it'd be hard coming up with the choices...)

Other random suggestions:

  • How much do you spend a week on technical books?
  • What's your favorite (other) Perl site?
  • Why did you resign? (see alt.tv.prisoner)
  • Which movie star would be most convincing as a Perl geek? (No Natalie Portman entries, slashheads...)
  • Into what home appliance/electronics would you most like to embed Perl? (Clock radio, refrigerator, dishwasher, lawnmower, stereo...)
  • What's Perl's least-used keyword?
  • Which Perl authors appear most frequently in your dreams?

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.
