|As an initiate both to the monastory and Perl I don't know if I'm allowed to post yet but...
I found this page very usefull and informative. It's explained several things that I didn't understand and really should have. If I could vote for it I would.
Regarding the comments about being too long. I can see why some may say that but I found it a reasonable length. It's not a solid block of text and doesn't take too long to traverse. If someone isn't prepared to put a little effort into their learning why do they deserve the rewards it gives? The page could be slightly tweaked but I don't feel it's my place to make specific criticism, it might be me that's actually at fault ;-)
...Oh and I like this preview business
