Awesome! and good work!

Some suggestions:

  • Title: Wording suggestion (same idea. simpler sentence): Change
    Don't use a title like 'Perl Problem' or 'Help!', they are very bad titles.
    Titles like 'Perl Problem' or 'Help!' are very bad titles
  • Explain your problem: Error messages are very hard to read unless they are in <code> tags, so add something that says error messages should be also be put in <code> error message here ...</code> tags.
  • Check your question: Demonstrate how to use <p> tags and what they do. If someone needs to be told to use <p> tags they may not be confident about how to use them. No every Perl beginner is a web programmer. Maybe change
    Use <P> tags to make your question more readable.
    Use <p> paragraph here ...</p> around each paragraph. Your paragraphs will look more like paragraphs.
  • Patience:Maybe add a paragraph (unless you think this is low priority and would make the HowTo too long):
    Do not blank out your question when you get an answer or even if you decide later it is silly. THERE ARE NO DUMB QUESTIONS. We keep a history of questions so your question can help others with the same question. If you blank it, we will put it back. If you want to "cancel" the question surround it with <strike>....</strike> and add a paragraph above or below to explain why.
  • Why strict and warnings? Either move to section just below Perl or merge with that section.

Best, beth

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
