Studying full answers isn't necessarily bad, especially not when you learn from them.

Did you read the semi-official Perl literature yet? "Programming Perl" (aka the Camel book) might be too hard, but "Learning Perl" should be easier (I haven't read it). Both are in their third editions already, and more information can be found at or or in the better book stores. (No, they don't pay me for this, and if I don't say it, someone else will. These books are recommended to every Perl newbie here :-))

Or try the Tutorials section in the Monastery. It has tutorials on basic stuff like scalars and loops, but also on more advanced topics.

But I think that reading a book is usually a smart idea, as these books are more coherent than loose tutorials, and paper reads differently.

Good luck, and don't forget to have fun in the process :-)
