Hi Gabor!

Thanks for your effort.

There are some localised Perl resources on http://perl-begin.org/ :

http://perl-begin.org/tutorials/localized/ (currently only Shmuel's tutorial 
and a French one).

http://perl-begin.org/articles/ (some articles by the French Perl mongers).


There are also some localised wikis I'm aware of:


Maybe there is some other stuff. I originally asked Simon Cozens about 
translating his online "Beginning Perl" book to Hebrew (or any other 
language). He told me that its licence was unclear (as it was published by a 
publisher that went out of business), but that he wanted to make it one of the 
Creative Commons licences (forgot which one). The first edition is online on:


But its licence is not specified and it's only available as PDFs - not as its 
original sources (DocBook, LaTeX, MS Word , ODT or whatever). As such 
translating it may not be allowed. 

I once asked the author of the HTML Dog tutorials ( http://www.htmldog.com/ ) 
which are available online free-of-charge if they will allow me to translate 
them to Hebrew, and they said that they'd rather that I didn't. It felt bad, 
and I could relate to what RMS said that someone told him "you cannot have 
[the source code of the printer driver]".

As a result, I started working on my own HTML tutorial in Hebrew that is 
written from scratch and is 100% Public Domain, but I've been making slow 
progress due to technical problems and negligence. You can find it what I have 
so far here:

I'll add the resources I know about when I'm in the mood.

OK, I'll see what I can find.
