Actually, it's:  while () { ... }

But not many people seem to remember that.  :)

Programming Perl has this to say:
> Speakers of a natural language are allowed to have differing skill levels, to speak different subsets of the language, to learn as they go, and, generally, to put the language to good use before they know the whole language.  You don't know all of Perl yet, just as you don't know all of English.  But that's Officially Okay in Perl culture.  You can work with Perl usefully, even though we haven't even told you how to write your own subroutines yet.

And, yes, I think that applies even to code published on CPAN.
If there are *bugs*, report them.
