 <p>If this is homework, and your professor gives some constraints on what you can use (*sigh*) or your pointy-haired-boss (PHB) is constraining you in various ways (double *sigh*), please mention it when asking your question and we may still help you if the non-CPAN-enabled solution is, while not ideal, is still doable elegantly.

+The channel policies probably forbid people from setting up public logs of
+the channel, so there are no public logs that we are aware of online. However,
+various people keep logs of everything that happens on <code>#perl</code>
+when they are present on the channel and keep these logs to themselves
+for their own reference and perusal, and they can supply you with excerpts
+of these logs.
+It is a good idea to configure your IRC client to log your conversations so
+you can later refer to them.

 <p>The best way to get assistance with a Perl problem is to demonstrate that you&apos;ve taken some steps to try to find the answer yourself. This involves learning Perl enough to be able to fix the problem yourself. Learning Perl is not too hard and will prove useful into the future.
