Thanks for this, webfiend.
I was pleased with the tutorial - neither just kick around the bucket nor loads of stuff to take in.
Also: you explain in a "conversational manner" (if I may call it that :3), I appreciate that in an introduction!
Makes it less heavy to take in. I as a neophyte appreciated this.
As for me: now I'm moving on to make some text-based adventures! woopwoop :D
Feels like a nice way into Perl for me, oh and linked here's what my first ever Perl document looks like!
# - Displays a warm greeting
# - Puts; print, string-variables, chomp and clear to practice
print "\n What is thy name?\n\n\nYour reply:";
my $name = <STDIN>;
print "\n and From whence dosth thou hail?\n\n\nYour reply:";
my $usrhomerealm = <STDIN>;
print "\n ah, Salutations $name of $usrhomerealm!\n\n\n";
