in reply to New User .. Need help with some tutorials or books

As you've now witnessed, there's more than one way to do it.

A couple weeks ago I was at a Perl Mongers meeting where someone new to Perl was in attendance. After the meeting he was looking for suggestions on how to go about the learning process. I asked "Are you reading a Perl book? Which one?" He replied that he has been working his way through the exercises in "Learning Perl." I and the three others participating in the discussion each nodded and said, "That's where I began with Perl."

Not everyone starts with Learning Perl. Obviously you can do it without, and there are other options. But it's a good book, and a good place to start. As a matter of fact, every so often I update my copy to the latest version just to see what the authors consider important "now" in an introductory book. I recommend it.

    Thanks Dave..

    And just to make your comments more commendable, I have already started reading Learning Perl a few hours back.. And I found this book really worth being preferred as the first book..

    So pleased with the decision and all yours suggestions..

[Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open?
[Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window?
[LanX]: I want the command line in the history

[Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file.
[LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy
[Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history
