About Mother of Perl

Mother of Perl is a free biweekly how-to devoted to all things Perl. Perl has been an integral part of the Web developer's toolkit for years now. There are probably more Perl scripts, tools, and libraries available for Web Development than any other modern language. This column will attempt to address the needs and concerns of the Desparate Perl Hacker© by providing practical, powerful, and elegant solutions to everyday problems in 100 lines of code or less. If you would like to see a topic or problem area covered in Mother of Perl, please let me know by sending me some feedback.
