I am new to Perl myself and I must say that I like seeing the most efficient way to do things. I don't expect everything I see to be easily understood and granted a question turning into golf is a bit harder to understand. I have probably missed some of the basic things, but I have gained allot of understanding on how things are done in the real world. By not understanding something, it just makes me want to learn more. If I have to back track or reverse engineer the code, so be it. I think that for anyone who wants to see the different ways to do something, it certainly benefits. I do like the idea of a newbie node though. Maybe something attached to the tutorials?
