If you are unfamiliar with the syntax and function, then have a look at the manual pages of the Perl documentation at The Perl Directory - perl.org

If you have no idea of what the heck Perl is, then check out books by O'Reilly Media for a good introduction (provided you have the willingness to learn, of course).
