This presentation is aimed at reasonably technical audience - a Linux user group, to be exact. I have assumed that the audience is familiar with the Unix operating system, with programming languages in general, with the Internet and the World Wide Web, and probably with tools and languages including C, sed and awk, shell scripting, etc. If this does not describe your audience, you will need to modify the content of this presentation to suit your needs.
There are a couple of points in this presentation which you will need to customise to suit yourself: the section ``Who am I?'' should be changed to describe yourself, your own Perl background etc. Also, the ``Where to get Perl'' section may need to be modified to suit your geographic area - give appropriate mirrors where known, etc.
