Good article, just a few suggestions...

Your list of "fundamental Perl array operations" should be linked to the sections later in the node, like an index. See General-Purpose Linking.

In your "Clear an array" section, you don't mention this:

@array = ()

...but it does show up at the end of the section on splice.

At your quiz, you say "highlight text to see it", but then use a <spoiler> tag.

Your description of pop could be as detailed as your description of shift. Maybe put shift first and refer back to it.

I'm not sure "array slice" counts as jargon.

I think the whole section on splice would be better with examples. Showing equivalences to other operations such as shift is good, but those are available in the splice documentation that you link, and it might be nice if a novice could come learn about splice without reading everything else. The kind of examples I'm talking about are similar to what you write for unshift and friends.

@array = ( 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e' ); @s = splice @array, 1, 2;

@s will contain ( 'b', 'c' ) and @array will contain ( 'a', 'd', 'e' ).

    [Discipulus]: dazz i'm not an experts but i think it would be possible
    [Corion]: dazz: I think Image::Magick can "read" from an in-memory filehandle
    [Corion]: choroba: No, some general admin discussion of how to handle (company) user accounts
    [Discipulus]: might be it is necessary to pass the pic data like MIME::Base64:: encode( data..
    [Discipulus]: if you have a jpeg data: or as wise Corion said IM ca n read directly your handle
