Recommendations for learning Perl

Postby Stoneage » Sat Jun 16, 2007 12:04 am

I've had very helpful advice in this forum for Coranto and would like to learn more about customizing Coranto with Perl.

Does anyone here have suggestions for websites or current books that might help me to have a better understanding of Perl code?

Thanks for any help.

Hi, Deborah!

I went and bought "PERL and CGI for the WWW", the Visual Quickstart Guide by Castro. At $20, it really gave me a solid foundation, although I'm still only casually refering to it. However, the quickstart guides have worked wonders for me in my PHP skillset, so I recommend this one as a starter.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.

Thanks for the recommendation, Jackanape.

I like the Quick Start Guides, myself. I'll order this book right away!

I like the O'Reilly books, and you can also refer to the perl documentation online
