Module questionsby costas (Scribe)
|on Apr 04, 2001 at 13:12 UTC||Need Help??|
costas has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am new to using modules and have a few questions.
1)Is there any way besides looking through the c:/perl folders that i can see what modules i already have installed. (eg a small script i can run).
2)How can i find out EVERYTHING a module is capable of doing.
3)How do i find out what syntax is needed in my scripts to communicate properly with a module.
for example. I have just used CGI::cookies and was suprised to see that the following code actually worked. I wouldnt have know this had i not found it in an example on the net.
4)Why do i have to write use CGI; as well as use CGI::Cookie;. Surely just calling CGI would work as the cookie stuff is in there too.
I would appreciate any response as i am sure it would help us module beginners.
