What do you mean by similar? Stack overflow is very similar on some points (if you filter on tags to have only one language), it's a place where you ask questions and get technical answers, there are upvotes and downvotes, and people who ask for someone to do their homework and some user happily complying.

But I find perlmonks much more learner friendly, because there's too much of a focus on being wiki-ready on Stack Overflow. Your title has to be perfect (easily googlable), your formatting exact, and the ultimate goal is to reach one answer that is THE correct solution and straight to the point. On perlmonks, you won't get that easily downvoted because there's a typo in your title, or you didn't use the correct tag. Here you'd even get upvoted for an answer that doesn't compile and isn't the best one, just because you've added to the debate, it shows there's more than one way to do it, and it gives others the opportunity to explain why one solution might be prefered (and formatting issues and small mistake will be addressed separately in a private message, or through consideration)

So if you're asking for similar communities because you hope to find more of perlmonks, I tried, and I was disappointed.

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.
