( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think that there already are such books. And I think you are making a fundamental error. Comp-sci has very little to do directly with Perl. Comp-sci is like math. It has various applications in various areas of computing. Such material is not well suited to a site like this. I think that when you find a concept or term that you dont understand you should go to other places to find out what its all about. A perl implementation is just that, a perl implementation of a generic idea. This site is about perl specific materials, not about computer science as practiced by perl programmers.

Having said that i think some of what you are asking about falls pretty nicely into the tutorial category. We do need more people writing tutorials but creating a new section isnt going to encourage them I should think.

I suggest that you buy Algorithms In Perl and the perl cookbook as it sounds like they would cover a lot of what you feel you are lacking.
