in reply to Perl Babysteps 1: Your First Simple Script

This was a great start for me. Thank you. I'd like to make a suggestion. It should be emphasized that Perl must be installed first or nothing will happen when you run hello.pl. I tried to jump the gun and found out the hard way. Baby steps for a baby's mind. Thanks again!

    Exactly how should it be emphasized more than it already is? The second section is titled in big, bold letters: Installing Perl

    This section provides 4 different pointers on installing Perl.

    The install section is followed by the section which tells you to run hello.pl. The author reasonably assumes that the sections are read in order.

      I think this is a great tuturial. Thanks for sacrificing your time for others
        I agree, great tutorial!
