For learning perl, I highly recommend The Perl Cookbook once you've got
a basic feel for the language. When I was doing server-side web
development, this book was constantly open on my desk. Highly highly

If you're already an experienced programmer, but don't know python, I
recommend It goes pretty quickly from
simple stuff right into the cool things python can do. I've picked up
python quite quickly this summer and I have fallen in love with it (even
though I'm doing windows development...). The actual python
documentation is quite nice, but the trick is to know what you're
looking for.
