Hmmm...why not just write it yourself or get someone else to write it and
post it to  I'm sure that if you place a pointer to it on that
many perl programmers out there will hear about it.  This assumes that
O'Reilly isn't
interested in publishing a short how-to.

I've followed the Apocalypses and Exegeses and I admit that some of the
talked about are impenetrable perhaps because they lack context, are from
functional programming or lack sufficient explanation but others are very
cool.  I really like the new hyper operator that allows you to do this:

@mean = (@data1 ^- @data2)/scalar(@data1);

all of a sudden you've gotten rid of a for loop and condensed it into one
nice compact statement.
