I found the Perl Cookbook a great way to learn as it suits my, admittedly lazy, approach;)
The examples there and indeed the Seekers of Perl Wisdom here are great for exposing you to correct Perl idioms.
Like yourself I came to Perl from a Unix admin perspective with a knowledge of scripting and a little C. The difficulty you will encounter is that such knowledge predisposes one to write inefficient Perl ignoring the idioms of the language and so looking over better code will improve your own.

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
