I strongly disagree and i --'ed your node accordingly.

Low level introductions are good since they help people without experience in programming. Hell, this tutorial will even help people with experience in <insert favorite language here> if it's the first thing they read about perl.

Also, PHP did not target "idiot non-programmers"; it targeted "non-programmers" - which caused problems, I agree, but mainly in language design, not in documentation (except for the user-edited docs on php.net - which I frankly find terribly vague and untrustworhty)

belg4mit kicks Perl in the shins, "Unmatched ) in regex; marked by" my ass
[belg4mit]: Nothing wrong with perl -le 'print ":)" =~ /(?^u:^(\:|\:\))$) /'
[Lotus1]: belg4mit are you on a Linix server?
[belg4mit]: yes. the regular expression is generated in code from a text file. that s the regular expression that Perl blows up when it reaches it, but if I use it from the comman line it's fine
[belg4mit]: oh, wait, damn, different lne number
[choroba]: same Perl version?
[choroba]: oh, ok
[belg4mit]: I had \Q'd in one RE but not a subsequent one, doh
