Here are two references for learning regular expressions, one site and one book. I recommend you get the book and study it, and also study the site. The site is www.regular-expressions.info. The book is called Mastering Regular Expressions.

In addition to what as been said here. Maybe you could start with following documentation right from on top of your system, it will cost you nothing but time. Just type the following on the CLI perldoc perlrequick, for a quick start. Then a bit longer one perldoc perlretut. You can also see perldoc perlre.
I think those should get you started.
