An excellent introduction for those with no programming experience. The author does a great job of taking you through the fundamentals of Perl and explains *every* command with an example. Bit by bit you can start to see how everything ties in.
I have read other 'Perl for Beginners' books but none come close to the clarity achieved in this book. The author does a particularly good job in remembering that the reader is an absolute beginner whilst still delivering the goods.
Clearly written and explained and entertaining too - a great 'first-step' in learning the language.

Despite having no experience in programming, I was able to grasp the fundamentals of programming in Perl very easily due to the book's excellent pace. By the time I had reached the end of the book, I had begun creating interactive web pages using Perl & CGI (which it only covers briefly). I found I had to buy a couple of other books in order to get more information on CGI & Perl though.
This book is a good place to start, nothing more, nothing less.

As you'd expect from a book in the 'for Dummies' series, Perl for Dummies assumes no prior knowledge, and gets you going as a gentle rate. I'm a fairly experienced programmer in other languages and I've tried other books and find them hard going. Perl is a powerful language for what it can do, but its syntax can be a little obscure. This book takes you through it step by step, and makes it easy going.
