  • While I'm not sure that 5.8 would justify it, 5.10 definitely would. It has some fantastic features that many people aren't going to know about. I'd love to see a 'Learn Perl 5.10' Web page with a good summary. I suppose there is one out there, somewhere :)

    • Try this: []

      First talk.
      life is short
      • er. openoffice format. better to have a pdf.
        here is a pdf version of it (available for 24 hr) []
        • I'm wondering how people think a Microsoft Office format is fine — MS Office is expensive; but a format for a free program is not acceptable.

            While not wishing to get into either a political or technical discussion about which file formats are "better", the simple fact is that more people have the capability to read the Microsoft formats (.doc, .xls, and .ppt) than the OpenOffice equivalents.

            The OpenOffice users have the best of both worlds - they can read and write Microsoft Office files as well as their own. However those of us using the Microsoft applications are stuck with .doc, .xls, and .ppt, and may not wish to (or even be able to) install a new office suite (e.g. on a work machine).

            So if distributing information to the widest possible audience is important, please stick to either the Microsoft Office formats, or publish as HTML or PDF.
