i have been tasked with doing several presentations on perl at work,
to people who are not at all familiar with it (or even any unix. or
even the ms-dos cli).

my first session will focus on the bare essentials and cpan. i have
the cpan half of it mostly finished, and i'm working on the perl
introduction. so far i am drilling down these points:

* three basic types
* control structures
* subroutines
* packages
* cpan

from a bird's eye view, what do you think i'm missing?

thanks in advance,
