My background is administration, not CompSci. You lost me. ;-) I recognize some of the data structures you mentioned, for example, but not others. What are some good resources to learn about common algorithms, data structures, etc.?

I reason that I can't be a good Perl programmer if I can't learn to be a good programmer in general...

    One of the best online locations read up on general data structures and asymptotic time complexities would be the following URL

    http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Programming:Data_Structures

    This document gives a really great overview of all the major CS data structures and it even gives a nice explenation of Time-Complexities without going too in depth (It gets confusing when you start calculating complexities of recursive algorithms )

    Some of the pseudo-code and impelementations may be hard to understand, but what you cannot figure out based on this document you can definitely google. I was looking at the Linked-List explanation and I have defenitely seen better explanations before. There is no need to complicate such a simple concept...

    Good luck!
