    Sometimes short, sweet and to the point is better than waffling on, especially if someone only wants a URL...

    /me begins to waffle

    Devnull, this is a pretty good resouce:
    http://perl.oreilly.com/

    lots of sample chapters, and some books no longer in publication.

    lol, CT.

    devnull...I'd suggest Sam's Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days if you want to get a bound resource.

    Yeah, and "Perl Core Language" is pretty good aswell. It even covers Perl/TK

    Check out some of these "dedicated" PERL websites:

    http://learn.perl.org/

    http://perl-begin.berlios.de/

    http://www.perl.com/

    http://www.perldoc.com/

    There are some other good ones out there. Just type in "PERL for beginners" in google or something and you should get some resources.

    If you are serious about learning Perl then grab a copy of the Perl CD bookshelf from ebay. Make sure that you get 2.0 or better. i got the 2.0 for about $23 shipped. The only thing is that it doesn't have "Learning Perl" ( in 2.0 I believe the 1.0 and all others do) but it comes with 5 soft copy books and a hard copy of Perl in a Nutshell which comes in handy when you need a quick reference.
