Juerd-
I like Cheat sheets. They help with the everyday stuff until it become routine. I would submitt the idea, any good SW book has a summery of commands in the appendix. Worst case let them say no and keep the page up for those in need.

One comment on your Cheat Sheet. It would be nice if you did something in addition to making the titles Bold to make them stand out. Maybe Underline too.

    Can't do that, since I want it to be plain ASCII. That's also why there are no borders around the sections, and why I didn't just use a table to format the thing.

    Besides, bold characters are wider in most fonts, so it'd ruin the lay-out. Underline would be possible, but still the ASCII thing holds.

    If this ever becomes a perldoc, markup like this is not possible at all, since in POD you can't have fixed formatting and markup at the same time.

      =pod C<You B<certainly> can.> =cut
      See perlpod.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

        C<You B<certainly> can.>

        Not with fixed formatting. A fixed font doesn't make formatting fixed :)

        =pod C<B<Animals> B<Fruits>> C<Cow Apple> C<Goat Pear> C<Elephant Banana> C<Monkey Orange> =cut
        Besides that, pod2text puts "" around C<> stuff. Quite useable, but not in this situation.
