If you can manage the regexp thing with Perl, Python should be fairly 
easy. For one thing, there's a lot less typing - no need to end lines 
with a semicolon, many things are more intuitive.
With a Python console (you get by just typing 'python' in bash), you can 
enter expressions and see what they do. Ctrl-D drops you out of Python.

What you may be able to find on the web is an introductory course and 
examples someone at a university has created, which if it's any good, 
you could print out.
