Relevant Perl Man Pages

Man pages are awesome! To find the “Manual” for anything in Linux, just open a terminal and type man with the subject you are looking for. ie:

man perl

What if it’s something less precise? Use the -k switch to get a list of anything containing the subject you are looking for. ie:

man -k network

Once you’ve read what you need, just hit q to quit back to the terminal.
