Learning Perl

Amazon Order (or just read more about) Learning Perl from Amazon.com

This is how you learn Perl.

You could, of course, do what I did: wade right into the Camel book and get yourself painfully confused. If you have a good background in C, sed, awk and grep, you might even do fairly well without it, because Perl borrows concepts from these languages and tools, and a lot of it will make perfect sense immediately.

But for most of us, a lot of it will not make perfect sense, and while you can (as I did) spend hours or days testing your understanding against little test programs, you have another option: buy this book.
