[Solved]: Thoughts on a section for popular one liners

Hello monks,

I have not been a very active user until recently when I started working on perl. So please forgive me if I am not suggesting something useful or just repeating a topic that was discussed earlier as well.

As a learner, I am fascinated with one liners in perl that could do something very useful in just one line. So this came to my mind. Would it be a good idea to have a link on perlmonks where we can have users post some interesting/useful one liners? Going further (may be) selected ones are displayed on the website.

Just a thought that I wanted to post so new learners like me would be tempted more into perl and sooner or later start writing their own one liners :-)

I did a quick search on net and found that there is one book as well on perl one liners by o'rielly media.

Thanks in advance!

    One-liners... That's a good idea for site content! But we don't need a new section for it. If you read the site doco, such as PerlMonks Sections, you'll find that the best place for one-liners would be Cool Uses for Perl.

    I encourage you to peruse the PerlMonks FAQ. You'll find interesting and helpful information, such as.... whether we need more sections. ;-)

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      Thank you jdporter for referring me to the appropriate sections and PerlMonk FAQ. I'll put more efforts to try finding these myself.

      Thank you eyepopslikeamosquito. This is really interesting and will definitely be a good learning for me. (Some links from "List of Perl one-liner links" are now directing to IBM site, but it's already mention on the link that those are broken.) Enough for me to learn at least for a week :-)
