Dear Anonymous Monk,
> Please do not downvote and censor this node for giving OP a correct answer..
Actually I see Reputation: 9 (no significant downvotes) and this is a normal trend here nowadays. Perhaps a decade or two ago it would be something like Reputation: 50 (-5) but here we are..
The smaller community has its advantages: lesser flames and trolling: I see downvotes only on blatantly bad answers and yes, we still have some bad contributors, but the medium level of partecipation is very hight. I'm not speaking of me, of course.
> .. and you guys still refuse to give people what they want!
Here I dissent. The complex process of understanding and the trip of knowledge is not built on: I want a so give me a but more like: well you claim to wont a but do you know about à or A ? With children your best is to offer a wide panorama, not a narrow path to follow, so almost every advice is welcome and no, there is not the true answer (apart 42 obviously ;)
I abandoned many years ago the idea of leading people through a specific path. By far better to offer your own look of the panorama and let them choose or even invent their own one. We all assume erickp being adult and already a programmer. Maybe they see Text::XSlate and it opens their mind, maybe not: who are us to judge or forecast something? Just offer your contribution in a good way. Stop.
With love too.
