    Like an astrologer, you seem right if you're maximally vague.

    Do you have any recommendations for a good recent book as of today?

    (Not holding my breath.)

      Learning Perl by O'Reilly seemed like a good book the last time I looked at it, but it's been quite a while. These days I have Programming Perl (aka The Camel), 4th Edition, also from O'Reilly. It's the complete reference book on Perl, although on-line stuff is more up to date.
