( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a bit of a problem ahead of me. I am a relatively new UNIX admin with a background in networking and hardware. I have no programming experience, and have very quickly realized the need to be able to read and write at least very basic Perl scripts. I have been asked to take some existing Korn Shell system monitoring scripts that were written by an old admin that has moved on to bigger and better things, and streamlime them and possibly rewrite them in Perl. So here begins my real question. What path would the masters recommend to save a poor soul like me. Are there any definitive books and/or courses online that you would recommend to get me pointed in the right direction?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
