Notes for authors
Notes on structure
Be clear about which of the three main sections your proposed work falls under. It should either be a FAQ, a HOWTO, or a Tutorial. The descriptions for these are given in the main Start Here page, but broadly:
- FAQs should focus on problem-solving. Solutions should be geared towards a single problem, rather than exploring Perl functionality in elaborate detail.
- HOWTOs focus on providing in-depth coverage of a part of Perl.
- The TUTORIALs section provides fully worked examples relating to a class of problem.
