hi all, i am new to perl and i am trying to design a web form (login, registration, user profile, session, cookie, mysql database connection, etc) using perl. is there any place where i can get a good tutorial on the above, or is there any existing code i can use for practice and learning. thanks

Learning Perl is the best place to start. Buy it, it's not just a read-it-and-toss-it intro, it's also a good reference for a long while after you're working in the language. Programming Perl is extremely good as a followup. I haven't used the Intermediate Perl book, so I can't say whether it's any good, but I had no trouble going from Learning to Programming.
