Get started with Perl 5 and learn the important core concepts of Perl programming, such as variables, flow control, expressions, and I/O. Additionally, this book covers pattern matching and shows that Perl is extremely flexible and powerful, and that it isn't afraid of the cloud. After reading and using this book, you'll be able to start writing your own powerful scripts to solve many web and programming problems.
