Do some Perl learning...

podwebserver& sleep 2; elinks ''
Prerequisites: module Pod::Webserver installed. You can install it typing: sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Pod::Webserver' You can replace elinks with your fav browser. For FF: podwebserver& sleep 2; firefox -remote 'openurl(, new-tab )' If you have Firefox open, this will pop-up the index web in a new tab.

What Others Think

For all Ubuntu users out there: You might have outdated CPAN mirrors. You can edit the mirrors editing the /etc/perl/CPAN/ file and looking for the line saying 'urllist'... Change to the mirrors nearest to you visiting the CPAN mirrorlist page at Regards,

Learning a programming language is quite difficult for people who are inclined to study the humanities. But at the same time, it is very easy for students who are inclined to study technical disciplines to learn a programming language, but it is very difficult to learn how to write essays, reviews, theses. But it's good that there is cheap essay writing service usa that helps students with a technical mindset to cope with their homework in the humanities. It is also worth noting that this site offers homework for both technical disciplines and programming at the same time.
