    Perl,Perl,Perl....please help.

    Hi all.
    i bought myself a book about PERL and CGI, but this book really suck.
    it doesn't explain most of the concepts that are fundemental in PERL.

    it would first tell you what a scalar and a list is, then next it would show you an example of
    a cgi script that would retrieve form data and sends it via e-mail to where-ever.

    i have done a bit of c and c++ and i do know javascript,and html.

    it not all that hard to learn these languages but, i spent ALL MY F..CKEN money on this book,
    and its not well organized.

    does anyone know a good Perl site???

    thank u
    for taking time to listen to listen to my whiny ass.
    cheers

    or if you're looking for source code... ya gotta love www.cgi-resources.com

    www.perl.com

    Great documentation at : www.perl.com/pub/q/documentation

    I also highly recommend three O'reily books (this is cooincidentally who makes the above site)

    Perl Cookbook, ISBN 1-56592-243-3
    Perl Programming
    Advanced Perl Programming, ISBN 1-56592-220-4

    Sorry, don' thave the regular programming book, by the time I bought them I didn't need it

    /nebulus
    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.
