Hello!

Three comments so far.

1. Why are you using -w instead of use warnings ?
Most of the newbies will probably download ActiveState or use the perl 
that came with their Linux, which will be in both cases 5.8.x.

2. On 2.3 you write that semicolon signifies end of line/command exactly 
like C. This is wrong since it signifies a seperator between commands. 
Hence, you do not need it at the last command in a block. This may 
overload a programmer. new to Perl, but at least remove the "exactly 
like C" part.

3. On 2.7 you write about scalar and list context. Should void context 
be mentioned, at least in footnote?
