in reply to When is OT really OT?

I think you should post the tutorial. And the idea with "Related Topics" as a section is good.

btw. Because of this (not-really-on-topic) node by you i found your tutorial on installing modules, which kept me from asking a very stupid question. (Had trouble installing a module via, there it told me how to call perl Makefile.PM, that did I, but the module wasn't installed after that. (I needed the make parts, too.)

    I'm glad it helped. While some people take the view that you should RTFM before you ask questions Perl has a very big manual and sometimes it is difficult to know where to start.
