that perl101 is a great site its just what perl needs for beginners. i've been 
using perl for 9 years now and i've never looked at perlmonks, not for any 
reason in particular though. i've always googled for perl answers or used a 
book or two in the past and thats meet my needs fine. 

cpan works great, the site is clean and just a single search box you can type 
a keyword, thats all you need most of the time.

after my first real look at perlmonks today my main comment is that you should 
not have to read a faq in order to find out how to use a site. the first one 
or two sections of the faq (Getting Started with PerlMonks, About PerlMonks) 
should not be needed, maybe its just me having reading problems.
