<p>There's a lot of information about Perl out there on the World
Wide Web. Unfortunately, a lot of it is of rather questionable
quality. And, even more unfortunately, Google seems really happy
to serve up results which include links to some of the dodgier
pages - stuff that hasn't been updated since the end of the 90s.</p>
<p>We could debate the reasons for this for days. But in my opinion
this hurts Perl's reputation. This information reinforces the
stereotype that Perl is still just the programming language that
was used to write bad CGI scripts twenty years ago.</p>
<p>So I've decided to do something about this.
<a href="">Perl Search</a> is a
<a href="">Google Custom Search
Engine</a> which returns results from sites that are known to
have good and up to date information about Perl.</p>
<p><a href="">Perl Search</a> is run
by Dave Cross. You can read his
<a href="">Perl blog</a> or follow him
<a href="">on Twitter</a>.</p>
<p>He would love to hear if you find the site useful or if you
have suggestions for improvements.</p>
