Where is the best place within perlmonks to start learning basic perl?

Yours is an inherently difficult question, since "for me" implicitly follows "best," and respondents don't know what you're bringing to the table.

That being said, toolic provided a link to a great resource and Lennotoecom mentioned a classic, viz., Programming Perl. The PerlMonk's node seeking direction to start with perl offers some resources within which you can 'self-place' to begin learning Perl.

In addition to practicing, I'm always learning from others' postings here, so I encourage you to browse many of these questions and responses, too--but don't be discouraged if you don't understand some of what's going on, yet. Give yourself time...

As you're practicing, if you encounter an unresolved Perl programming issue, post it here as a clearly-worded question with your code, the data (redacted, if necessary), and expected outcome. Doing so will provide a good context for others to effectively address your issue.

Hope this helps!

[perldigious]: Don't worry, it's not loaded, is pretty much the most frustrating thing a person can say to another person when you are around a firearm. Basic gun safety courses try really hard to hammer home the "treat it likes it's loaded all the time," thing.
[perldigious]: That's basic.
