newbies and perl

You're talking about being outdated in terms of technology, not content, correct?

Also, as a workaround for now, you could use "Search distribution:" on the perl dist on metacpan:

Ugh, nevermind that last suggestion. I thought it would focus on the pod first.

Vague complaints like this aren't going to help very much. To have any chance of helping the situation, you have to be more specific about the problems you encountered. It would be more helpful if you could suggest some improvements. Even more helpful would be to volunteer to implement those improvements.
