I’m a dev with 20yoe in mostly Java and js but have various amounts of experience with other languages. I’ve decided that I need Perl in my toolkit because I find it on even the most minimal boxes preinstalled and I can’t always install Java or Js just to do admin things. Typically I use bash for these tasks but I just need a little more ability to abstract than what bash easily provides. What would you all recommend as the place to start? Most guides that I run into assume that I’m a beginner to programming and it feels slow. My normal method of learning a new language is to stumble through building a web server but I’m not sure that the way to go here.
