Which Tutorials are Best???

I'm REALLY new to Perl programming and I'm looking for a good, beggining tutorial, I did some 'net searching & found about 200 of them! Does anyone have a personal fav. that you think would help me out? I would GREATLY appreciate some help narrowing this down!

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

"Programming Perl" by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen and Randal Schwartz ISBN 1-56592-149-6 published by O'Reilly

Excellent book


RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

I prefer to use FREE resources whenever possible. (just a note, might help narrow-down the options)

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

Every installation of Perl comes with over 1000 pages of documentation. If you want free info that's the best you'll get.

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

But I don't HAVE that info.....I'm getting my PERL pages hosted on SOMEONE ELSE'S server; is there any way I could acces this info from a diff. source?

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

www.perl.com/CPAN/ has all the documentation in online, searchable form.

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

Thank You very much Gargan....bookmarking that site!

Thanks for the info Kyrene!

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

I found some of the "tutorials" difficult to follow. The following offers a very basic, well written into to perl.

Has anybody mentioned the HTML Writers Guild www.hwg.org or WDVL www.wdvl.com sites yet? There's also www.itte.org.


RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

Once you have learned Perl, get the Perl IN A NUTSHELL by O'Reilly. It is great reference book.

RE: Which Tutorials are Best???

I found that www.cgi101.com was great for learning basic perl too. I downloaded the pdf file, and learnt from that. Now I can make customised purchasing pages from my website.
