in reply to Hello every one
In addition to this site's resources and those at learn.perl.org, I also recommend buying or borrowing from your local library Learning Perl, which is a solid introduction to the language and is affectionately referred to as "the Llama" by members of the community because of the animal depicted on its cover. I found it to be very helpful when I began learning the language and I think that many others here would agree.
I wish you every success with your new job and learning Perl.
