Have a look at "perldoc perlsub" - especially the section about prototypes.

You know about "regular" email apps like Outlook Express or Eudora,
right? And how some services like Hotmail provide a web-based interface
to their email service?
The same thing is true of news groups. Google groups is just a web-based
interface to Usenet - and not a very good one at that. It's gotten worse
recently, mangling spacing in posts - that might be where your indenting
went. Google groups is really useful for searching the archives; it's
much less so for posting new messages.
Check your provider's support pages for info about Usetnet or NNTP
access. There are a variety of news readers you can use - OE, Mozilla,
Thunderbird, Emacs, Agent, PAN, etc. You could even write your own with
Net::NNTP if you felt like it.

Have a look at <http://learn.perl.org> for recommendations regarding
books and online material.
