PerlMonks does use CGI.pm. It's a fork named Everything::CGI.

Development of the PerlMonks engine diverged from Everything a long time ago. I'd estimate about 20 years ago. There has been some porting of features back and forth over the years, but very little. My point is that studying the Everything Engine you download now will only give you the most general gist of how PerlMonks works.

If you like, I can add you to the PmDev group so you can start looking at the code here.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    " ...I can add you to the PmDev group so you can start looking at the code..."

    That would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

    People have been suggesting I should submit a patch, but obviously that's not possible without looking at the actual code.

      Done. First thing to do is read Pmdev HowTo Wiki

      I'll be your mentor if you have any questions along the way. No question is too trivial. Welcome!

        Thank you, very much!

        I'll be leaving for Boston MA tomorrow. Isn't the Free Software Foundation there in Boston? Does anyone know, is it open to visitors? I was thinking of dropping in. I don't get to Boston often. --Tom
