Hello storm5510 and welcome to the monastery and to wonderful world of Perl!

Membership here can be.. fun, as fun can be sometimes real life. One of the mottos is Clear questions and runnable code get the best and fastest answer (as I read it in the meanwhile in the top left corner of the page) and, as you can imagine if you passed the age of reason, is a good behaviour.

Many times even poor questions are answered kindly, in the hope the newcomer will be better in the future. Sometime happens. Sometimes. See a very recent example.

About searching/asking: structured and readable questions are better and also to do some research on your own on the site is welcome and often lead directly to a solution. This is incredible: Perl evolved a lot in the last 20 years of perlmonks life, but code from such remote era is still valid most of the times. But many things happened, many useful modules have been uploaded to CPAN and many new monks signed here, so sometimes is also good to reask a question possibly specifying what already found.
