Another on-line resource: http://perldoc.perl.org/

perldoc is an executable that comes with Perl and displays Perl
dicumentation.  In a command prompt, type: perldoc perl

This gives you a table of contents of the perldoc's.  The above link is
the documentation but in searchable format.

Also, `perldoc perlmodlib` gives a list of all Perl modules and
pragmatics that should come with Perl (some distributions are beginning
NOT to include them all).  You can read about them with `perldoc
module_or_pragmatic_name`.  Or you can search for them at perldoc.perl.org

Programming is as much about organization and communication
as it is about coding.

I like Perl; it's the only language where you can bless your
thingy.
