      For the Perl non-beginners...

      Is there some sort of standard set of interfaces to modules so that when I
      decide to try a new module I have a starting point? It seems to me that
      most modules I've run across are less-than-ideally documented and the
      methods of using them a little arcane. I know that I've ended up rewriting
      a lot of things just because it would take longer to decipher a module
      than to code something up.

      Does anyone know of a good HOWTO-use modules?

      Thanks,

      Greg

        That defines and explains. (but to answer your qu

        Probably we need to know Perl sufficiently enough so that we can write our own script so as to utilize (interface) what it is that a particular module provides.
