I think it depends on your knowledge. For newbie-questions I would say that here is the appropriate place.
But if you think of recent changes in Perl, modern concepts like closures or higher order programming, then you are right, perlmonks is the better place to ask.
Don't forget the newsgroup comp.lang.perl.misc
But note that perl comes with an excellent online-help-system, you'll only have to type "perldoc" in your terminal.
