PerlMonks Search Alternative
One of the issues with using PerlMonks recently is the intermittent availability and sometimes questionable result quality of the PerlMonks Super Search. In attempting to use SuperSearch over the weekend, we noticed the following addition to the instructions on that page:
There are certainly some serious issues with this new search technique (including generating "Server Error"s -- no need to report those). You might be happier using Google's advanced search against perlmonks.thepen.com.
It turns out that perlmonks.thepen.com is a static version of the PerlMonks web site. It was a good idea to build this parallel site because PerlMonks itself is not very search engine friendly. This is because of the high percentage of dynamically-generated content on the site.
