I've found several good tutorials in the past by doing a search for "perl tutorial" or something like that on  www.Google.com.

If you are serious about learning Perl, you will need to get a book sooner or later to learn it and to use as a reference.  The tutorials online are ok, but they come nowhere near the quality of some of the beginning/learning Perl books out there.  If money is an issue, go to your public library or local college/university library and ask the librarian to see if they have it or if they can order it for the library.

Wish I could reccommend some links, but I looked around when I started learning Perl and found nothing to my liking.

Tsvetomir:
god (noun) - a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship.

good (adjective) - of a favorable character or tendency.  Ex: It is a good book.

Ummm, and no one recommended perldoc yet?
man perl, and then lots of perldoc.
(The online manuals are *good*).
http://www.perl.com is another good reference.

Your Perl installation should ship with Perldoc (and man is on any unix/unixlike system, including Linux, *BSD). Perl.com is seriously the best reference you can find, otuside the books, and the actual docs, and google and the code.
