I am really liking Learning Perl, 4th Edition from Oreilly,
(http://www.oreillynet.com/catalog/learnperl4/). You can find it on
half.com for about 25$. A good site for beginners and resources:
(http://learn.perl.org/). Also there are free books for learning Perl:
(http://www.perl.org/books/library.html). I have no idea of Perl
classes @ colleges.
