This tutorial takes only an Introductory look at Perl. Therefore, if you wish to study the Perl Programming Language further, consult the texts mentioned below. This tutorial is based largely off two excellent ORA texts:
Schwartz, Randal L. and Tom Christiansen. Learning Perl. Cambridge: O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., 1997.
Wall, Larry, et. al. Programming Perl. Beijing: O'Reilly & Associates, Inc., 2000.

This tutorial is not meant to replace these texts. It should be used as a supplement only. You cannot learn Perl by just reading about it! You must practice what you learn if you expect to get anything out of this tutorial.
