perlfaq - Perl 常问问题集 (2003/01/31 17:37:17)  


perlfaq 按照主题划分为多个文档,在本文档的末尾有一个目录。

Where to get the perlfaq 如何取得这份文件?

这份文件会定期投到 comp.lang.perl.misc。也可以在许多网站上找到它,例如 还有 译者注:两只老虎工作室的位置是 还有 还有 <>

How to contribute to the perlfaq 如何为 perlfaq 做贡献?

你可以将更正,扩充以及建议以邮件方式发送到 . 这个地址不能用来提问题,它只用来修正当前的 FAQ。如果有问题那么投递到新闻组 comp.lang.perl.misc。可以在 查看源码树 (它是在主源码树之外)。CVS 仓库记录了对 FAQ 的所有改变。

What will happen if you mail your Perl programming problems to the authors 如果把编程问题寄给作者怎么样?

作者大概不会理会您所提的问题,除非您是在建议把一些新问题加进 FAQ去,但如果是这样的话这些问题当初就该寄到 处才对。

您应该已经阅读了这份 FAQ 的第二部分,您应该知道 comp.lang.perl.misc 才是寻求免费建议的适当地方。如果您的问题真的很重要而且您急着要得到正确解答,那麽您该请一个顾问。

最初的 perlfaq 由 Tom Christiansen 完成,接着在 Tom 和 Nathan Torkington 的合作下得以扩展。当前的文档由 perlfaq-workers ( 进行维护,很多人贡献了解答,更正和评注。
