Either this question has been asked so many times it is in the FAQ (couldn't find it on first pass, though), or the subject is verboten; either way, I could not find recognizable references by casual perusal of the site:

Is the code for the Perl Monks site available for reuse elsewhere (as in, is it free- or shareware)?

I am charged with developing a message board for a site I am working on, and I think the whole node structure seems ideal for this application.

If it is available, where may I find it?

Thanks in advance,
