If you have a question, you can be sure someone has already asked the
same question at some point on c.l.p.m. It requires some time and
patience to sift through all the content but often you will find the
answer you seek.


The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.
