hello,

I just started to do small things with perl, and it's going sooo slow. I know C reasonably well, but a lot of functions in perl have a different name. So here's my Q:

Is there any reference that will tell me the PERL equivalents of C functions, and vice versa ?
It can be either books or internet pages..

This would really help me a lot,

thank you all,

Although the camel is your best shot, if you can find the older camel (the reddish one), you might find it more helpful than the current (blueish) one.
