in reply to Enhancing Debian Reference

In context, the Perl section you linked to seems OK, as that chapter is devoted to the shortest-possible synopsis of the various packaged languages. It implicitly refers to cpan with the "how to install modules" line, and refers you to perl(1) and the Camel - pretty fair advice in my book. To attempt anything else would take a whole chapter by itself.

The BASH tutorial link is part of the LDP, which also seems to be avoiding any major language tutorials (the PHP-HOWTO has now been replaced with a link to I think as there's so much information out there already for anyone who decides they want to learn Perl, adding Yet Another Perl Tutorial is probably a bit superflous. Maybe, as you say, a couple of extra links ( etc.) and adding the Llama to the book list is all that's needed.

Cheers, Ben.

    I'd be careful about focusing on non-free documentation. There are many of freely available resources (including complete books) out there that would be more inline with Debian.

      Could you please name them? (will try to google for it, but never used one.)
