From the Perl Monks guide to the Monastery:

What Perl Monks is:

  • Our attempt to make learning Perl as nonintimidating and easy to use as possible
  • A place for you and others to polish, improve, and showcase your Perl skills
  • A community which allows everyone to grow and learn from each other.
  • That being said, I'd much rather a poster submit their question the most effective way that they can, in order to recieve the best answer that they can. If that means that "you" or "I" or "we" can't understand it beacuse it's in a different language, so be it. Yes, "you" or "I" or "we" will miss something... maybe something earth-shatteringly-astounding. But, that post will be answered, and answer will be the answer to the question, or a translation of the question, or both.

    Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
    and:  <code> code here </code>
    to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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:
