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:
- Write up your draft tutorial and put it in your scratchpad; broadcast requests for comments in the chatterbox and elsewhere.
- 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
- Post the final version as a Tutorials node.
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!
