[PATCH] [DOCS] Modernize perlopentut.pod

Hello,

Despite being a tutorial, perlopentut didn't seem to me to provide good
advice. It predominantly used bareword filehandles and two-arg open,
while current best practices call for lexical filehandles and three-arg
open. With Matt Trout's encouragement, I've revised the tutorial
slightly along those lines. I've added some terminology, rearranged
sections, and mentioned autodie.

I was under the impression that submissions to perlbug were also sent to
p5p, but I guess that was mistaken. So, here's the patch I submitted
there: https://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=94860, on the
assumption someone here will have something to say about it.

Thanks,
-Mike Doherty
