is my recommendation for someone just starting out.
Perl is a thorough, complete reference to Perl. CGI Programming
with Perl provides background on CGI.pm. You can get electronic
access to these books through O'Reilly's Safari program for $9.99 a
month. O'Reilly offers a free 14 day trial of this service. Check
here for details.
