    There are a few nodes here at The Monastery that you'll be able to find ideas on where to start (i.e. what type of projects may help motivate you to learn perl in your own way) - use Super Search. Also, you may want to check out the book Learning Perl and the Tutorials here.

    In addition to the suggestions by moonie, you might consider getting a copy of Perl Cookbook. Browse through it and try playing with the examples given. I'm sure you'll find lots of examples on topics that you are interested in. All examples are given in a Problem/Solution/Discussion format, are relatively short and will likely address most of the basic problems you will encounter as you begin programming Perl.

    Moonie is right, this is one of the best place to start. Register and have some fun with us. Also, Learning perl is a wonderful book, each chapter covers a principle of perl and is followed by exercises to reinforce what you have learned.
