learning drill, it will quiz you on the information. We've had success
in mastering the material this way, which in turn allows us to work

Second slide - statements do not always end with semicolon,
such as a construct like an if statement or a while statement,
or the last statement inside a block.
Third slide - "man" can also be used on correctly configuring systems.
Fourth slide - it's '-w' not '-e'.
x = x + 10... where's the dollar signs?
In fact, in general, I see many later slides that fail to use a dollar
sign. Do you even *know* Perl?
And then after reviewing a dozen more slides I stopped.
You are taking this directly from the "Learning Perl" book, I see.
(Since I *am* very familar with that book, having taught this class
dozens of times.)
Would you at least have the courtesy of saying so?
