in reply to Perl Monks Tutorials -> Perl distribution?

If someone thinks it's a good idea and would like to see his/her Tutorial as a perlxxxtut.pod file in the Perl distribution, but is not willing to put in the effort to podify it, then I would like to volunteer for that job.

Please have a look at perlcheat (rep: 99) and 216602 (rep: 206). I haven't come 'round to adding leading whitespace to the lines yet.

The truth is that I haven't submitted this to p5p yet because (even though people here do seem to like it) I fear rejection.

And perhaps perlpodtut (Or, with discussion: 252477 (rep: 120)) would be nice. Note that even though it's a POD tutorial, the document itself is not written in POD.

Update (20030812)
perlcheat was accepted and will very probably be part of perl-5.8.1.

Juerd # { site => '', plp_site => '', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }

    Juerd: Thanks very much for doing perlcheat and for taking the time to convert it to pod.

    Everyone else: Feel free to send tutorials to p5p - sometimes they get accepted, sometimes they get turned down. With the 5.8.1 final release candidate (Jarkko hopes, I'm sure) coming up, now's not a good time, but proposing them for 5.9 is a great idea.

    I've personally experienced the (mild) wrath of Jarkko when proposing updates to tests that weren't really needed in the 5.8.0 timeframe, but no one's held it against me. My debugger doc patch was accepted (and it was huge!), but only because I got it in early.

    Worst thing that will happen is that the pumpking will say "no". Remember, the pumpking is the one you have to convince. Everyone else, whatever their opinion, doesn't have the power to say "put it in" or "take it out" - they can only comment.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
