Get yourself the Learning Perl book by Schwartz and Phoenix, that's what I'm using. It's a pretty good book, though it's geared towards using perl on a *nix machine. But considering you're at a Linux forum I'm guessing that you'd be cool with that. Hope this helps!

google search: "perl tutorial"
http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/General...ing/PerlIntro/
http://www.comp.leeds.ac.uk/Perl/start.html
http://www.sthomas.net/roberts-perl-tutorial.htm

I noticed at least one referenced on a "Win32 machine". I doubt that's a huge issue because perl is perl is perl. Only if you start getting into advanced stuff should the platform matter.

written by the man who created the Perl language. Probably the best book there is on Perl.

There's quite a few web site where you can start but i think they limit you.. some are horrible and some are good.. some leave out many things and i have yet to find one of book quality.. if anyone does e-mail that site to me please.. thank you.
Question of my own.. for perl it wouldn't be different if you interpreted on a windows box then a linux box would it?
