    Hi Nagessha,
    Good to see someone finding PERL a powerful language. The ultimate documentation for any perl programmer are the Perldocs. They can be your best tutor and povide the most exhaustive reference among all the programming languages. You can find an online version at http://perldoc.perl.org/ . Also if you are using a perl installation on *nix platform then type "perldoc" on the command prompt to get an instance reference to all that perl has to offer. I dont remember the command but perldocs are also available with ActivePerl, the windows installation. Another useful resource is the Perlfaq which can be found at http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/CPAN/perl/pod/perlfaq.html . The combination of these two powerful resources would suffice to answer all your perl related queies. If not, feel free to ask for any specific infomation , and guys out here would be more than glad to guide you.

    Please elaborate on what you exacly mean by above.

    I thought of posting it here but then remembered many of the thread posted by Shabbir in different languages that help me and so I also have created a thread PERL Resources that will be useful to you.
