Almost. I think a better way of elevating people into
the world of full Perl enjoyment is to show them WHY they
need that new construct or function. Otherwise, it's just more
noise to those that aren't ready to receive higher knowledge.
Just showing is not really enough. If someone takes a
brilliant one-liner and adds it to their program or
application without knowing how it works, then that is
really just black-box reuse.
But for God's sake, don't quit doing what you do! I think
what cLive ;-) was getting at is we need all kinds of
levels of answers. Remember, answers directed at the seeker
of wisdom are read by many more potential lurkers, and
while you may know the level of the seeker, you cannot
know the levels of the unknown lurkers . . .
