in reply to Suggestion for addition to Tutorials section

Doesn't look like a Perl tutorial to me. So I added it to Perl Reference Materials: Books. However, I'm not sure it belongs there, as it isn't a Perl reference book either. In fact — having only skimmed the book, it looks to me like it is not a Perl book at all, but a comp.sci text which just happens to use Perl, for illustrative purposes only.

    Well, it is as much of a Perl tutorial as Learn vi/vim in 50 lines and 15 minutes or Using CVS for revision control -- more so, in fact.

    I realize that it is not a Perl tutorial, in the sense of its purpose being to teach nothing but the Perl language -- it's a tutorial on writing a parser and interpreter, using Perl.

    But, as I said, I think that it is one of the few free online tutorials that I've found which shows how to use Perl to construct software on a larger scale than "Hello world", and "Create a class, instantiate object, call method, done". That is why I think that it belongs in the Tutorials section.
