I (Taejoon) personally learned Perl with this book long time ago. It is not only great 'Perl' book, but also really influential 'Programming' book. Also, it is concise, example-oriented, so you can follow the essence of Perl easily. I don't think you need to buy a book to learn programming language, because of lots of online materials. But if you want to read one book for programming as a beginner, I highly recommend this book.


A historical article (in 1996) by 'famous' Perl programmer/Computational Biologist Lincoln Stein, explaining why scientists in human genome project used Perl.

Every language has its own 'recommended' style. Here is a Perl version. If you don't understand what this means, just follow this guideline. It will make your life much more easier later.

Perl @ Windows

Unix/linux is not the only platform you can use for Perl programming.
