in reply to so brand newbie it's sick...

I would recommend taking a look at Elements of Programming with Perl. I haven't read it but I've thumbed through it and heard really good comments from others. There's a review of it here. I would recommend avoiding the oft mentioned Camel book since it's a bit much for a newbie. Once you've got a year or so of perl programming under your belt you'll definitely want to get a copy though!

[Eily]: It can also be used to force a copy, and remove magic from a variable
[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
