perl-begin / TODO

* Extract the common modules section out of src/uses/sys-admin/index.html.wml
and src/topics/files-and-directories/index.html.wml
    - Add File::Basename

* Add a link to perlweekly.com somewhere.

* Bad elements page:
    - clarify and expand the section about the open function:
        - give more examples for the anti-patterns:
            - not using lexical filehandles
            - using two-args open.
            - not using autodie or "or die".

* Add a page about file/directory-handling :
    - Will share a lot of content with the Sys Admin page.
    - Refer to perldoc -f open and perldoc perlopentut.
    - Other CPAN modules.
        - File::Spec
        - File::Basename
        - File::Find
            - File::Find::Object
        - IO::All
        - File::Slurp
    - TODO: inotify/etc.
    - TODO: Add cookbook:
        - reading files.
        - copying files.
        - appending to files.
        - appending selected portion from a file to another file.
        - deleting a directory tree.
        - writing to a file.
        - show all with IO::All and without it.

* #perl FAQ:
    - references.
        - What's the difference between an array reference and an array?
        - Same for hash.
        - "I've tried doing $my_array_ref[3] but it didn't work."
    - randomising an array:
        - shuffle.
        - picking a random element: $my_array[rand @my_array]

* Add a page about training providers:
    - http://pti.co.il/ - Perl Training Israel.
    - http://perltraining.com.au/ - Perl Training Australia.
    - http://perltraining.org/

* Perhaps a page about working with network protocols in general.

* Add more information about:
    - URI parsing.
    - Filenames and paths parsing.

* Books:
    - http://oreilly.com/catalog/0636920018476/ - Perl Pocket Reference.
        - All covering perl-5.14.x.
    - Peteris Krumins' Perl One-Liners Explained Book
        - TBD: which pages would be the best for it.

Long Term:

* Maybe a page on «What's next "after" perl?».

* Pick up a better gvim colour scheme for the example code in the
perl-for-newbies lecture.

* Syntax-highlight the examples in the other code excerpts in the site
(especially the src/tutorials/bad-elements/ ).

* Add some screenshots to the /uses/games page.
