Hi John,

nice post, and enlightening. I should note that I've been contemplating creating a framework for playing with graphics and maybe random text on the screen (think BASIC's "LOCATE" and "COLOR") intended for children, teenagers and other people who like to see results. I recently found something interesting like that done in Racket http://docs.racket-lang.org/quick/ - see its tutorial .). Maybe it can be done inside the web-browser too using Perlito (a Perl 5/Perl 6 to themselves and to JS compiler) or https://github.com/kripken/emscripten (which converts LLVM bitcode to JS).

Also please consider recommending http://perl-begin.org/ as well as http://learn.perl.org/ , because it is more comprehensive and may be suitable for different kinds of people. Its navigation menu may be a little daunting for some people, but I feel its various resources, fill many useful niches, and it is under active development and open content/free content (mostly CC-by).

Someone told me he is looking for a more “hands-on” tutorial (said in English inside a Hebrew sentence) on Perl, but I need to think about it. Maybe an interactive REPL.

Good luck.
