Essential Perl

Stanford CS Education Library: a 23 page introduction to the main features of the Perl language. Perl has a large number of features, but you can get pretty far just knowing a few core things, and that's what this article is about. The coverage is pretty quick -- it's intended for people who know some programming but need an introduction to Perl's way of doing things. Topics include: scalar variables, strings, arrays, hash tables, file input and output, regular expressions, and subroutines.
