where do I start? Can't Post

I know ASP, SQL, JavaScript, HTML, and I want to learn Perl (CGI) so where should I start?
Where is the best tutorial or what is the best book? I am a quick learner but I don't want the info to be rediculously complicated.
Please help.

When I started to learn perl i got "Learning Perl" from Oreilly, They do quite a few books on perl. I had only ever learnt html and never touched programming before and i found it quite easy to understand.

This place is quite good for asking questions if you run into any problems.

Good Luck

I don't have a "demand" to learn perl, so i really didn't feel like buying any books yet, but some online tutorials can do the trick, but most are really confusing, and odd. Try , they have sections with tutorials and documentation. If anyone finds a good full course or tutorial that covers alot of content PLEASE POST IT, hope i could help a bit, later.

Hi Perl Beginners,

an IMHO very cool online introduction to Perl is Robert's Perl Tutorial. It helped me a lot in my first week with perl. Having read this tutorial, you are able to do basic perl quite well. If you need additional information then, I absolutely recommend the Perl Cookbook from O'Reilly. It's one of the best Perl books ever written.
