Beginning Perl is a different kind of Perl book. It's written particularly with the beginning programmer in mind, but it doesn't treat you like an idiot, and experienced programmers will not feel patronized. It covers a lot of ground, from the very basics of programming, right through to developing CGI applications for the web. More importantly, it emphasizes good Perl practice, and readable and maintainable code.

Extreme Programming (XP) is a software development methodology that enables users, business people, programmers, and computers to communicate effectively. Perl is a dynamic programming language that lets an XP team embrace the inevitable change caused by effective communication.

This book has been created for a number of reasons. The primary reason is to provide a freely re-distributable tutorial for the Perl language. In writing this freely re-distributable tutorial, it is our hope that the largest number of people can have access to it and share it.

In the Perl community, we have discovered ways to save time by writing Perl programs that make our jobs and lives easier.
