I know I'm taking a risk by dusting off this old post, but....
I'd like to share with everyone that I'm an absolute beginner (think Beginning Perl chapter 5). I found this site by way of an internet search that directed me towards Building a Development Environment on Ubuntu (an indication of my recent introduction to the monastery).
Because of my acute tenderfootedness, there may be value in the fact that I find the content of this specific post to be rare and kind of inspiring. Based upon this alone I think Perl Monks will likely remain a beacon for all people interested in perl, new-b and old-b alike.
My two cents.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
