I think that I would find it difficult to get people that already think in Perl interested. I agree. And these, I guess, are the ones that make big decisions regarding this site. But for those that have not yet eliminated the 'middle' stage you refer to, I believe, such a section would prove useful.

    No it wouldn't, because it's nothing more than an expensive crutch that reinforces bad practice. It is much more helpful to get the concepts across and have people understand what they are doing (or should be doing) than it is to provide a lookup table which appears to make the circuitous route easier but really just impedes understanding.

    All dogma is stupid.
      Your assertion is that what I suggest is very different to what is already on offer. Maybe then the idea should go to a vote because the feature is not currently offered by the site.
