Another gem from Perlmonks. I'm thinking I should post this one to the Cookwood board :) <http://perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=84638> >From the POD: =head1 DESCRIPTION Inline::PERL gives you the power of the PERL programming language from within your Perl programs. This gives you instant access to hundreds of pre-coded applications such as bulletin boards, hit counters and shopping carts. PERL is a programming language for writing CGI applications. It's main strength is that it doesn't have any unnecessary warnings or strictures. It is a direct descendent of Perl, a programming language which was used mainly by programmers. However, the original language required too much reading and thinking and so PERL was developed as a language which was more in tune with the requirements of the Internet age. =head1 PERL DOCUMENTATION Unfortunately there is no documentation for PERL (believe me I've looked everywhere). Therefore, the best thing to do is to go straight to comp.lang.perl.misc and ask your questions there. -- The information contained in this communication is confidential, is intended only for the use of the recipient named above, and may be legally privileged.
