Default learning Perl and running script on WinXP Pro IIS

Hi all,

Can i firstly say, i am a nooB to Perl.

I am looking to learn the language on my WinXP Pro (IIS) machine.

I was looking for a few tips or good links that some of you may know of.

Also, can i run Perl scripts on IIS without problems? if not, what do i need to do?

Thanks,
Picco

Not sure on the links, but I too am a infrequent user (I've use perl a few times a year).

I'd plug the book from WROX: Professional Perl Programming. I found it at my local library and found it tremendously useful -- though it helps to have played around a bit first. I've just ordered my own copy

Not sure that helps, but I always start with a check of the local libraries.

thanks carterco, i have installed ActivePerl onto my Win machine and Perl scripts can run A-OK!!

however, in the same way that ASP code can be embedded within HTML code i.e

Code:
<tr>
<td><%=sVarName%></td>
</tr>
Can this be done with perl?? Or does the table have to be written in Perl, i.e. print "<tr>"; etc.....

You'd need to use a templating system like HTML::Template to do what your describing, its freely downloadable from CPAN.

Cheers

thanks (again!) charlie. i had a look at that Module on cpan.org. Installed it. quite good. saves me from having to print "<table>"; and stuff like that all the time - which was tedious. how much, second-hand, would i be looking to pay for WROX: "Professional Perl Programming"?
