paulacocacola has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello, I've never used Perl but I'm going to do a project where i will need to read a text and execute it. Meaning the program should be able to receive (for example) the text :Print 'Hello World'; and do execute(Print 'Hello World'). After that, I'll need to receive a function (in plain text), and be able to execute it (may have parameters). Does anyone know how can i start to do this? Where should i begin? thanks
