( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Here are a few that have really saved my life:

  • CGI - I assume this and DBI need no introduction? :)
  • DBI
  • Storable - Really handy when you need to serialize data (in a db or otherwise). Take a look at it next time you need to store data in a weird format.
  • IO::Socket - Indispensible if you are doing any sort of socket stuff.
  • Net::Shared - Shameless plug time :) I really hate IPC::Shareable, so I created this module. Its still under development, but next time you need to use shared memory, give it look; its much more stable than its counterpart.
  • LWP - huge time saver.
  • File::Find - another huge time saver.
  • Apache::Session - a module that makes it much easier to implement sessions. Takes care of most issues for you automatically after its set up.
  • Mail::Mailer - My favorite mail sending module.
  • HTML::TokeParser - My preferred way to parse HTML.

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:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
