    I would like to just say that the flames were obviously from people who KNOW perl and therefore think that this is a low level tutorial... you already KNOW this stuff so shuttup. Conversely, the kudos were from the people who benefited namely people who have taught themselves or people who needed this tutorial. The flames were ridiculous and nonsensical. I appreciated this look on the language. People need to start somewhere and this was very helpful. A starter tutorial has nothing to do with stupid people nor teletubbies. This tutorial helps people just getting started with perl and is (i assume) not intended for experienced people, therefore it helps alot. Hello World is a start almost every beginners book looks at. You did very well and I'd like to say you were more clear than "Perl for Dummies" which I started with because I needed the clarity that came with basic tutorials. all in all, good job, old fellow. carry on. -Stephanie
      First - Thank you for writing this document. Taking the time to enlighten others is highly commendable.

      For those who flamed - It's obvious that you're passionate about perl, otherwise you wouldn't bother answering questions here. This person put forth something to help others perform and understand. You have the brainpower, be a productive source of information for this writer.

      Was there anything technically wrong or misleading in the document? What could be done to improve the clarity? Is it focused and phrased for the intended audience? As a skilled resource, these are the sort of things you should be considering and commenting on.

      Few people realize how many non-technical people are forced into technical roles at their work. I've met more admins who've had root access to production servers than I'd care to admit. They don't get any technical training, don't have any previous background, yet their jobs require them to do "administrative functions" like create accounts, schedule batch runs, you name it.

      If people don't learn perl here, they will learn it elsewhere, and then generate more useless, convoluted scripts all over the place for the next engineer to forklift rewrite.
