Please browse through our book reviews here, but I think the definitive book has got to be Programming Perl.

For your needs you may well find that much of what you want to do has been covered here at the Monastery, so I'd encourage you to make use of Categorized Questions and Answers and SuperSearch. If you have a question you can't figure out on your own, follow these guidelines and you'll likely find many helpful souls here. Welcome to Perl!

Update: Stuffy is correct that Programming Perl probably isn't for the complete novice, but I do consider it definitive, and it is certainly the second book you should buy, if perhaps not the first.

I'd like to be able to assign to an luser

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.
