Hi Guys,
I need to learn Perl on windows environment. I have absolutely no knowledge in that. I am basically a ASP developer with VBScript, Javascriot,MTS, Com etc.
I went to www.perl.com and got confused where to start off with.
Could you all give a some idea about where to download, how to start, how do I use Perl with ASP etc. etc.

Thanks

I learned perl from books.

but if you want it all the info about perl can be gotten from www.perl.com

they have full tutorials, and indepth info on all the specifics.

and now that I've read a few books or two on perl, it is a useful reference...

warning:  you will go blind reading it all off your monitor.

Here is an online tutorial for perl on Win 32 systems that has a lot of info:

http://www.netcat.co.uk/rob/perl/win32perltut.html

and here is a collection of perl articles that are pretty good:
