excellent work Dave :)

I think it is brilliant that you took the time to let LXF know their 
previous Perl article was less than perfect and then on top of that, 
bested it with this very comprehensive and easy to follow article.

It always frustrates me that magazines like LXF have lots of Python 
based tutorials etc, but never any Perl ones anymore.

In saying that I did notice that Linux Magazine had a recent article 
about Moose, which was pleasing to see.

I think if the Perl world can keep making noise about the Modern 
movement like this, more and more upcoming developers will see Perl as a 
good option for new exciting projects.

.. even if it does go against the Perl Masons 1st rule ;) "sshhhhh...."
