in reply to Perl books on line

I seriously doubt that the website has permission from the publishers to put those books online. I'm fairly certain those are illegal copies -- don't use them! Support the Perl publishers and authors by buying your books. Several members of the monastery are Perl book authors and like everyone else they need to make a living -- I doubt they'd appreciate people pirating copies of their books. I know that merlyn, TheDamian, davorg, and chromatic have Perl related books out and I think japhy and Dominus have books on the way. There are probably other authors in our community too -- support the community, not pirate book sites.

    I just reported the original URL to I'd appreciate it if you keep that address around to report any others as well.

    Freakin' pirates. Sheesh. Steal these books, and you don't get any more.
