as a absolute beginner starting on perl it's difficult trying to find basic\ndefinitions of what some perl terms mean. After searching on google and\nscouring posts I still don't know what a perl argument is, or what a perl\noperator is. perl.com and perldoc don't give any straightforward definitions\nof basic terms but assume you already know what these terms mean. I've also\ngot a perl training DVD for beginners but even that doesn't give any\nexplanation of the terms used in it. Appreciate any help here.
