Journal's Journal: Beginner's Perl Tutorial

Since I do most of my web development in Perl under Debian Linux, I decided to write a beginner's guide to Perl development. It's a work in progress, but already has eleven chapters as of this posting. Source code examples are provided for each concept. Here are the current chapters:
  1. Introduction and Motivation
  2. System Requirements and Getting Perl
  3. Variables and Data Types
  4. Program Flow Control
  5. File Input/Output
  6. Subroutines and Code Reuse
  7. Your First Web Application
  8. Getting User Input with HTML Forms
  9. Coding Style and Maintenance
  10. Security Considerations
  11. Additional Programming Resources

Please feel free to give me some feedback on the tutorial; I'm looking for ways to improve it. Thanks!
