Even if you came into this as an intelligent but inexperienced person wanting to learn more about debugging in Perl, wouldn't you rather see "Don't know what this is? Look for a general debugging tutorial" than "We hope you know what one of these is, because they're supposed to be obvious."?

One of the issues here is that perldebtut has placeholders in for the section discussing this. I think I shall submit a patch.
