Perl Resources

I think that 'Learning Perl' by Randal L. Schwartz, Tom Phoenix is a book to start with. It enough to get you started with Perl. One thing to remember is that in Perl "there is more than one way to do it" (TIMTOWTDI). So you don't need to know everything there is in Perl before you make your first program in Perl (and I am talking about more than just a print 'Hello World' program).

The next book to go for is the Bible - 'Programming in Perl' by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen and Randal Schwartz.

If you are looking for some online resource, learn.perl.org is a good place.

In case you have a Perl doubt then you can always turn to comp.lang.perl.misc newsgroup. This is a very active newsgroup but be sure to read the posting guidelines first.
