What can you do here?
If you are a beginner, or would like to refresh your Perl programming knowledge,
you can go over the Perl tutorial.
You will find a few advanced articles too, though most of the advanced articles are available to the
subscribers of the Perl Maven Pro service only.
If you are interested to listen to or even see other Perl developers,
the Perl Maven TV Show is a collection of such interviews.

The MANIFEST files just lists the names of the files that need to be included in a Perl distribution.
When packaging the distribution Perl will use this list to determine what to include. When unpacking the tarball

No other file is included and no file is missing.
