Article at Perl.com

An Article I wrote to Perl.com was published yesterday. The article covers solving some types of puzzles with the LM-Solve framework. (which I authored). I did not mention I originally wrote it (which was some months ago) here because I did not want to ruin the element of surprise. I'd like to take the forum and thank two correpondants from Perl-IL who commented on an early draft of the article, and for Simon, the Perl.com editor, for instructing me how to do a thorough revamp of it, and for publishing it.

Maybe I should take the opportunity to clarify my opinion on Perl.com, because some people who read the "usabilty" of the Perl Online World for Newcomers misinterpreted it. I don't have a problem with perl.com as a site. It's a nice site, with interesting articles. I do have a problem that it is considered the homepage of Perl, because it is very much inappropriate for it. Recently, www.perl.org got a facelife, and regardless of its shortcomings, is already more suitable as a homepage for the Perl culture. So I suggest people to link to that as Perl and not to Perl.com.
