This section is an ever-growing online textbook, from which you can learn the basics of Perl, or some nifty stuff you haven't seen before.

Should I post here?

While you can post directly to the Tutorials section, this has certain drawbacks. A generally better approach is to follow this procedure:

  1. Write up your draft tutorial and put it in your scratchpad; broadcast requests for comments in the chatterbox and elsewhere.
    After revising,
  2. Post it as a new Meditation, with "RFC" in the title.
    Later, if it is generally acclaimed to be worthy of Tutorials, but needs more work first, then make the necessary revisions and
  3. Post the final version as a Tutorials node.
Since ideally the Tutorials section has a high value-to-noise ratio, tutorial documents should be in as finished a state as possible before being posted to that section. (Not that it's the end of the world if they aren't.)

If you would be interested in writing a Tutorial but aren't sure what to write about, or if you have an idea for a Tutorial but can't commit to writing it — check out the Tutorials Quest!

Also of interest: How does editing work in the Tutorials section?

If you have Tutorials-related questions or requests, you may /msg them to Pedagogues.

All of the following categories are Perl related, with the exception of the first one, which is PerlMonks related, and the last one.
