Updated perlfaq

[ #21205 ]

Before I took my long vacation, I updated the perlfaq frequently. I haven't really looked at it since then.

Today I finally decided at add the new answer "How do I tell the difference between errors from the shell and perl?" which has waiting on my desktop for a while.

So I did.

While I was at it, I created a t/pod.t for the perlfaq. Surprising, all the tests passed. I deliberately messed up some of the files to make the tests failed, just to make sure they were really passing. Nope: they all really pass.

Then I had to update perlfaq.pod, which is the table of contents. That's a rare event since we hardly ever add new answers. Luckily, I had written a script for this, although I had to change a few things in the template. No big whoop.

I think I need to get the FAQ autoposter working again: that's what really drove the improvements and corrections before. I'll save that for later, though.
