There are advantages and disadvantages to perl for a beginner.
An expert at programming in general might find it easier to become a perl expert, needing only to learn about perl in particular, than someone who also needed to learn basic programming principles too.
What are some programs you can't solve, and what difficulty are you having with them?

A beginner at perl probably doesn't need to know how to write modules, but I'd say that even a perl beginner should learn how use regular expressions.
`perldoc perlre` gives you all the pieces, and Jeffrey Friedl's book (see `perldoc -q book`) may help you understand many of the ways to put those pieces together.
But you may want to start with the basics.  
If there's some simple task you've tried to do with regular expressions, and weren't able to solve, why not post a question here explaining what you tried to do, and how you tried to do it,
and we may be able to show you other ways to do it, and explain the problem with what you tried.
But just trying different things to see what they do can be a good way for beginners to get familiar with regular expression programming.
