in reply to Old Programmer New To Perl
I've been lurking here for nearly 20 years, and improving my Perl in the bargain.
When I have a chance, I spend some time here reading answers to other questions, and sometimes asking my own. When I do ask my own questions, I often get good answers within the hour, though some good replies come in the next few days as well.
I would suggest not being shy about asking or contributing here. Those who respect others' time and points of view are well received. (Those who abuse the same are generally treated patiently at first, but sometimes we collectively run out of tolerance.)
