An excellent place to start,
By A Customer
This review is from: Perl For Dummies (Paperback)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.
