Did you google on PERL and tutorial or did you draw from hyperbole or imagination? Did you intentionally mislead us, lie to us, dupe us or was it just ineptitude?

My inflamatory rhetoric above is only to mirror yours. When I found that google search rather different than you implied, I distrust your whole post. I suppose rather like you were soured by some of the mistakes in tutorials on the web.

I see the first search results this way:

  1. an old (1995) intro by a Ben Johnson at the National Ctr. for Super Computing. Basic intro for people who Ben expects to read the docs.
  2. Perl4 dox with a intro stating it is just of historical interest. A sensible beginner would move on.
  3. by a John Pollock at The Web Design Resource this is both out-dated and a bit lame.
  4. is a reference to perlmonk's Tutorials.
  5. is a Carnegie Mellon University Perl4 manpage. It does have a header mentioning Perl5 and pointing the reader to perl.com.
  6. is www.perl.com. All my readings there have been worthwhile. I haven't read a beginner's tutorial there but I'm inclined to give it a pass. That is prejudice, I have no real reason to think that cause they can publish good mid- to high-level instructions that they would be good with a beginner's tutorial.
  7. is Robert's tutorial in the UK. This is outdated and dated in its own time. Rather lame. Its saving graces are that it shows -w early on and that it points the reader to perl.com and activestate.com.
Be well,
rir
