Perl 5 by Example
offers a reasonably-paced introduction to programming in Perl at a level accessible to readers with no prior programming experience. Especially valuable for readers who learned HTML on their own and now want to try more sophisticated Web programming, Perl 5 by Example
starts with the basics--what are literals, variables, functions, and so forth--and advances through using Perl with CGI, to process Web-based forms, for instance. David Medinets includes numerous notes, tips, and cross-references that can help novice programmers avoid getting tripped up by common mistakes or misunderstandings.
