in reply to Perl Babysteps 1: Your First Simple Script
Having learned C/C++ in a highschool class and Java/perl through a college class, with much self-teaching on all accounts, I like tutorials like this; that give a very basic idea of a perl script that one can build on. These types of tutorials are very helpful for those who are not programmers by nature or trade, and merely wish, or are forced, to learn a new skill.
