in reply to Perl Monks good for Beginners?

You can get documentation from anywhere, but Perlmonks gives the documentation a personality. There is a group here that can and will help you understand even some of the crappiest docs, and they do it with a patience that is not quite present in other places. You feel 'helped' rather than 'tolerated'. Plus, they'll make you laugh, probably at yourself.

Personality counts, and it counts for a lot. If it didn't, we'd eat dogs a lot more regularly (US-centric).
