nope. it is just you that is lost. perl is all of that and more. you
haven't done much training i bet. you don't give out easy problems as
they don't keep the student's interest. you push them as much as you can
to get to the next level. ever taken a class with damian? he doesn't
pussy foot around with kiddie code. that line is just like stuff he
trains with (and i have plenty of experience in his classes as one of
his producers). getting a student to marvel at interesting code gets
them involved and asking questions. that is what training is about.

and you can mix/match all sorts of short code snippets on
learn.perl. just don't make them all kiddie things or no one will come
