Off of the web - a few clicks away from at the blindingly obvious
URL. You know http:/www.XXXX.com/ ... but replace XXXX with, well
I'll let you guess.

Or are you looking for an off-line source?

A totally free interpreter may be hard to come by, but for only $19.99,
I'll sell you my gently used copy of Perl. And for just $99 more, I can
throw in a bridge, if you are interested in New York City real estate.

In article <PhQx6.585$584....@newsfeed.slurp.net>,

"Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which we
will not put." (Winston Churchill)

Actually, supposedly the Oxford English Dictionary has now changed
their opinion, i.e. it's something they approve of.

If you are under Windows try Active State Perl: www.activestate.com
If you are under Linux you can too use Active State Perl, but generaly there
is a Perl environment with your distribution.
If you are under mac try MacPerl, I think you will find it via www.perl.com,
the official web site of the perl mongers.

Actually, the Oxford English Dictionary does not discuss the issue,
but if it did, it would merely discuss the history of its usage;
the OED is not in the business of approving grammatical constructions.

Sure enough, the OED web site says their goal is to be descriptive
rather than prescriptive. I may have been thinking of "The Oxford
Guide to English Usage"[1]. That'll teach me to post something based
on what I remember reading in the news.

Nice April Fools joke. Half a dozen people went for it.
