in reply to Perl cheat sheet

I recall finding a foldout laminated perl cheatsheet at the bookstore, but I can't find it anywhere. It's similar to this, but it's a fold out, 4 page guide to perl basics. Am I simply crazy, or can anyone confirm seeing this?

    Possibly not what you're thinking of, but The Perl Reference Guide by Johan Vromans is available for download. It has also evolved into The Perl Pocket Reference from O'Reilly.

    That document has a somehwat more ambitious scope than Juerd's effort though.

      When I see things like this I wonder why I even spend money on books! Man, I hope my wife doesn't see this. If she does I won't be able to justify my most recent O'reilly purchases. Doh!
        It's hardly something you can learn Perl from..

    Yes, you did see a Perl cheatsheet. I don't have it, but I have the Linux one -- comes in handy for those brain-fade moments. If your local bookstore doesn't stock them, you can get them on the Web at

    Yep, got one a long time ago. Not bad for a quick refernece, but not too in depth either. I think mine ran about $5.00 or thereabouts. Barnes & Noble had them for a while I think.

    There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.
