Could you give me a suggestion as to the best beginners guide to Perl for CGI programming - something that will get me started and take me to a reasonable level. I have C/C++, Java, JavaScript/HTML background. Please suggest a text that assumes that the reader knows nothing whatsoever about UNIX.

There's a good list of books and references at:

http://wwwiz.com/books/cgi-perl.html

Many of the books listed there, however, are trash.  For ratings, check out

http://language.perl.com/critiques/index.html

In particular, I'm fond of "How to Set up and Maintain a World Wide Web Site" by Lincoln Stein. Well, ..... at least I don't hate it.
