Why not put your editorial money where your mouth is, and offer a patch to the Perldocs? Create a document and submit it to the powers-that-be who are maintaining the package. I’m sure that they would love the help. Good writers are hard to find. The only ones who can make Perl better than it is are, “us folks.” You certainly won’t be the only person who shares your particular difficulty with the documents, but if you write from your point of view the material that you wish you could have read ... the next person who also thinks like you do, thanks to you, won’t have to repeat your negative experience.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
