Q&A

Q1:

If the Web was invented after Perl, why is Perl a CGI language?

A1:

Perl is a CGI language for the same reason that computers are used to play games: It's not what they were invented forthey're just good at it. The next hour presents a more detailed explanation of why Perl is a good CGI language.

Q2:

I posted to Usenet and got a rude, flaming response. What should I do?

A2:

First, does that flame contain some good advice? If so, take that and throw the rudeness away. Otherwise, just ignore it and go on. Life's too short to waste time in a flame war.

Q3:

Is there an easy way to search CPAN?

A3:

Yes! The Web page at http://search.cpan.org contains a general search function and allows you to browse recent changes to CPAN and look through the modules by category.
