Simon Cozens has been mostly absent from the Perl community since he’s gone off to mission work in Japan, but he writes in to tell us:

I’ve begun the process of putting my (very) old book Beginning Perl,
first edition, into a wiki to allow it to be updated, corrected and
annotated: http://books.simon-cozens.org/index.php/Beginning_Perl It’s a very rough data dump at the moment and needs a lot of gardening,
but hopefully it’s still a useful resource.

Thanks to Simon for making this available to the community.
