I just found a link to back issues of 'The Perl Journal'. The links to sample code are broken; does anyone have access to these listings?

    Could you provide an example link to an article where its code samples are broken?

    A number of years ago I archived everything I could find from TPJ. I don't know for sure that I have what you're looking for, but if I knew which article to look at I might be able to help further.

    I archived the articles because I was concerned that there was no long-term solution for where they should live, and was afraid they would disappear altogether. I hoped to put them up on a site for others to view. What's been holding me back (aside from the fact that I forgot all about it until now) is that I'm concerned about how to go about obtaining permission, possibly from each individual author, to re-publish. One possibility would be to place them on my local Perl Mongers website...assuming I can obtain permission.


        Hmm, yes, I have that issue in PDF format. Now what? (I'm sure I don't have rights to post all 30 issues that I've got stored).

        Does anyone have any suggestions for an appropriate way to make these available?

    Would this node, here help? (Provides TPJ code and articles published by Dr. Dobbs)
    If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!

      not quite the same thing, but fun and thanks
        So pick your own poison: search terms that led me to that (Via Big G) were "Perl Journal." You'll find other cites there include a 2001 Slashdot note that says archived TPJ articles can be found again and back on line, with mag content turning up in quarterly supplements to "System Admin Magazine." Regretably, as of 7/31/13, both point to Dr. Dobbs -- and one gets a Dr. Dobbs 404.

        I don't bother to follow all of them down for currency and relevance but it might pay you to do so to save shipping on davido's .pdf ( :-; ) .

        But, lacking excellent OCR, you may find this offer from DD of interest:
