in reply to A proposal: new section on Perl Monks.

I think that you want: "Someone to explain algorithms and constructs in plain english."

Seeing as you clearly states that you have no computer science background, it's clear that this is what you are asking for in order to learn, when in fact there are plenty of material already available in books and on the net and ready for consuming.

I can see where this proposed new section can help you - and others like you - but this is a Perl site, not programming 101.

I'm not saying that this place doesn't teach programming (heck, I learned most of what I know from here) but I don't imagine that for someone who wants to learn programming, visiting perlmonks would be a very obvious choice.

Just my 2 cents

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.
