Hello everyone, I'm new to perl, at least I haven't touched it for about 3 years, and even then I only did the very basics. Well I'm back and want to learn perl. I have six books on Perl from O'Reilly, but each time I look at them I dread going through the books. So I decided to go another route and was curious if anybody had any suggestions.
Currently, I need a script to be written which reads a list of server IP addresses, connects via SSH and then executes commands that are specified in another file. I figure this will be my first "project" and should help me get my feet wet. If anybody else has any projects that is good at getting experience and knowledge of perl, please suggest them.
