I have heard of Perlmonks.org before, and now, I finally made my way here! =) I already received help on a big problem I was having!! On most other forums in which I have participated, it seemed like people were not knowledgeable of Perl, let alone experts with it. In fact many people believe that Perl is going "the way of the dinosaur."
Actually, using CGI protocol with Perl, is probably much safer than using PHP or ASP (as long as you know what you're doing) ; ). I'm glad there is a good community around that gives Perl programmers a place to go, to express themselves, and receive help when they need it. If I hadn't found Perlmonks.org, I'd probably be spamming Larry Wall for help, or something (j/k)!
Thank you, Perl Monks,
