in reply to Silly questions?

I consider myself a newbie in the intricacies of Perl, although I can program reasonably, I'm always amazed at the multitude of ways people inform me to do things more efficiently.

I do however exhaust every other means of information mining before I post here in respect to the systems and principles of this site that I yet know hardly anything about.

While I do think a newbie section may be useful, what would it contain? Probably the first chapter of a few good Perl books, why not just read/get those and have the information on hand 24/7. I think newbies would learn a lot more by ploughing through introductory Perl documentation as they don't always know what they want to know, they are just plagued by a drowning confusion of where to start.
