You can download the DBI and DBD::Oracle packages if you need to connect to oracle. The DBD::Oracle package contains documentation with examples of connectivity.

To learn about perl/cgi (novice) look at:

http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/programming/perl_cgi/index.html

To find out about perl books, goto a bookselling site like

http://www.amazon.com

and search for perl books.
There are many available, depending on what you want to focus on. There are descriptions and reviews from readers recommending the books.

Good luck,
Cadabra

cadabra is right, the DBI, DBD documentation is good,
take a look at http://www.cpan.org
install the required packages DBI & DBD::Mysql (for example)
you will then have a complete online documentation.
This assumes that you know perl & databases.
good luck

there is also a ODBC package still avilable at the CPAN (http://www.cpan.org)
you can make a search on this site, it's nice and working fine.
the documentation will be available once you will have installe the packages using the following command :
perldoc DBI and perdoc DBD::MySQL
