I would like to add my own experience to all the wise previous advices:
- * I find it better to read a 'solid' book than a virtual one. I can read it in a Public Library. And take my own notes. Try scraching some lines of code over a paper. And after erasing and writting a lot, try running it
- * There is an inmediate execution of some little perl code that is called 'One-liner'. Just try from the command line to write the following: perl -e"print(\"Hello World!\n\")" And see how many things you could try before adding them to your script.
You should try everything that you learn.Enjoy!
