I am going to move this to the Scripting forum - where serious folks might actually know the answer.

If there is a "visual quickstart guide" for perl then buy that book. I love the html book of their's bec it is very very condensed (liteweight) and has real samples for everything. Much better than very thick books and in 5 years as a web/J2EE developer it has answered every html question I've or my html pros have ever had. Maybe their perl book is good, too. It would be better for beginner than the O-Reilly books plus be a great quick reference to keep in your office/home.

"=~" is used for pattern matching/substitution,
"@::", ....strange syntax. "@" for arrays, "::" for symbol tables of imported modules, but the combination of both?
HTH, ErikDark
