The monks bestow blessings upon you, garthish.

I know that Deitel makes a CBT for Perl. Just look at the bottom of this page While I have not used it, I have used their CBT for C#. Overall, I'm impressed. Not only is the accompanying text dense with good examples, the lessons on the CD illustrate important concepts without pretending to build full-blown apps.

I never used the CBT route for Perl. It was enough to simply curl up with a book for a few hours and begin simple scripts. My knowledge really ballooned when I decided to code a vexing problem in Perl; I just jumped in with both feet and picked up what I needed as went along.

If you know C, you're 85% there. All you need is regexs and the Perl idiom, which comes with time. Don't spend the money on a CBT.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
