I am a complete (well sort of) newbie to perl. I had an intro to Perl class in the last couple of weeks and am working on my first projects at work - stripping reports down to put them in a database. Anyway other than a smidge of CL and Korn shell scripting - Perl is my first attempt at doing some consistent programming....
SO - that said I have a question. What is a module? How do i use it. What is CPAN? how does it tie into a module. I am scanning as much info as i can and i remember seeing these two (modules/cpan) recently - is their someplace here that can teach me all about modules and using them?
THanks o bretheren
